Whether we’re dealing with certain relational dynamics around the holiday season or simply finding our way through conflict at work or with peers, relationships can be a source of stress at times. We are wired to connect with and feel valued by others, but sometimes getting those needs met can be challenging. Join us this Thriving Thursday as we reflect on ways to navigate challenging conversations, set boundaries that align with our needs and values, and build healthy relationships.
