Sometimes I still feel like an imposter. I am glad to say most days it doesn’t occur and I can carry on without much concern.  But other times the voice still can creep in.

When we need to have a hard conversation with someone so many feelings can arise in us that cloud our thinking and distract us.  How we learned to handle the hard talks come from our...
