Episode 150: Passive Communication
Show Notes

We’ve discussed the most healthy form of communication, Assertive communication, and we’ve discussed a pretty detrimental form of communication, Aggressive communication! In this episode, I’ll be explaining what is referred to as a PASSIVE communication style. Passive communication is another form of less-than-healthy communication and one used by a LOT of folks… namely those who “want to avoid conflict at any cost.” Sound like anyone you know? Sounds like a LOT of people I talk with in my work! Listen in and learn how to break yourself of passively communicating (which, by the way, sets you up to be taken advantage of, which can lead to feeling resentful, which can lead to emotional eating, which WILL lead to weight regain)… Let’s DEFINITELY avoid THAT at all costs! Listen in!
