Write it down.
Sometimes when preparing to have particular types of conversations we spend a lot of time gathering information and planning what we want to say.
We do this because we want to be prepared and we want things to run smoothly. Also, many of us have probably had situations where we got flustered or overwhelmed and forgot what we’d planned to say.
However, despite this, we sometimes don’t end up writing things down.
Maybe it feels silly and you’re worried about sounding rigid when you talk or appearing to be reading off some sort of script. And so when we have the conversation, even if it goes alright, once it’s over we realise their were things we forgot to say.
