Have you ever felt trapped in a conversation with someone who can’t seem to run out of things to say? You start to wonder when the monologue will end so you can carry on with your life and make the most out of your time. If bumping into a talkaholic feels like your time has been stolen from you, then it’s time to speak the truth and be authentic in your encounters.
In today’s episode, I explain the different factors that contribute to the making of a talkaholic. I share stories of my interactions with people who talk excessively as well as how I have experimented on my responses under those circumstances. I also share strategies you can use when dealing with talkaholics, including actual phrases you can practice and experiment with to discover the best way for you to handle these situations.
“Don’t have the fear to interrupt. Allow yourself to do that - experiment with interrupting.” - Pripo Teplitsky
