The Elephant in the Room

Posted on July 6, 2009 in: Commandments by Andrew Birkhead

Elephant in the Room

Here’s rule 5:

5. If there’s an ‘elephant in the room‘ talk about it.

How many times have you had a conversation with someone while being really careful not to mention the elephant in the room? Think of all the energy it takes to walk that mine field. Really it’s energy that could be used for something else… Like having an honest, open relationship with someone maybe? The next time this happens, try saying the words: The ‘elephant in the room is…’ then talk about whatever awkward subject needs to be spoken about.
