Positive, neutral, negative, none: the four types of conversation (or more generally, interpersonal interaction)
Ultimately life is all about our relationships: the ones with others of course, but also with ourselves.
Of course we all want to have positive interactions with others. But that's not always possible.
Some of us grow up in environments where there are too many negative interactions. Inter-generational trauma is passed down from parents to children. In situations like this, it's no wonder kids choose to disengage. They choose none over negative.
