Bonus Episode Day 17
One of my favorite stories about Josh and empathy
Josh talks about his perspective about sensitivity. We talk about my anxiety and how it impacted him and what was helpful in how I communicated with him. I talk about how when Josh was applying for college, at one point, I was asked to NOT talk with him about it, then my husband coached me to only ask him 2 questions at a time, which was very effective. I talk a lot in the introduction about the mental load we carry when we have to remember all the details for everyone we care for, and what a toll it can take. I give some suggestions about what worked for us.
