    How to Have an Awkward Conversation


    Awwwkward . . . . . . . Each day, we encounter situations when we feel the need to say something but because we fear we'll be judged, not liked or the other person will be displeased, we suppress what we're really feeling, bite our tongues and avoid what will be an awkward conversation.
