What If I Only Get 15 Minutes?

Graphic Design by Lizabeth Laroche

A listener writes in to ask what to do when there’s only 15 minutes a day to talk to a loved one. How do you use that limited time? If they’re using, you have to focus on the brief moments when you find they’re not and be very specific in your requests so that they’re do-able. If they aren’t using, be patient, invite them to do things in a low-stakes way, and don’t push conversation beyond the immediate.
