Do you keep silent in conversations with certain of your friends and or loved ones because you think there is no point talking?

Are you anticipating being made to feel silly, stupid, and then shut down?

Perhaps you decide to just get through the interaction without taking the risk, but you pay a price of gagging yourself.

Does the anger build later on? Do you fume and try to exert yourself in other ways to compensate?

Whatever you do, the same fear rules you and makes relationships stressful and unsatisfying.

Unless you find your sense of entitlement to be a player and participate.

Watch this video and you will find out how to do that so that you don’t have to suffer that old anticipatory fear that keeps you small, silent and furious.

Give yourself the pleasure of making sure you have healthy emotional intimacy that is the foundation of all good relationships.
