When a Friend Wants to Talk About Something Uncomfortable

Stan Goldberg, PhD

06/09/14  A friend I know for more than 20 years asked to speak with me about a life-threatening illness. He didn’t want medical advise. He was interested in how he would be able to emotionally deal with a debilitating illness. I was honored that he wanted to share his fears with me. When it happens to you, don’t run away or try to make lemonade from lemons. Be honest, open, and listen very carefully.
