"I just came for my sister’s funeral. It was too soon. She shouldn’t have gone so early." Explosions went off in my head as I thought how did I ever step on that landmine. Of all the questions I could’ve asked, I asked the worst one possible. Maybe it’s just my luck. Christina Steinorth is a psychotherapist and throughout her experience, she has noticed similar communication problems among her clients. From there, Cue Cards for Life was born, providing tips for a happy, healthy, and successful life. It somewhat acts as a How to guide for relationships, all sorts of them. The book is separated into different chapters for different types of relationships.
Cue Cards for Life Reminders for Better Relationships was a quick and easy read. Each cue card featured short and sweet tips, some maybe even obvious. As obvious as they may be, we still screw it up at times. I’m guilty of interrupting others. I don’t mean to and I know it’s rude but sometimes I get so caught up in my conversations that I simply forget. A gentle reminder would have helped and that’s what these cue cards are here for.
Here’s something I liked from the chapter, Cue Cards for Social Sensitivity: "Address awkward situations; don’t avoid or ignore them". I personally appreciate it when people tell me I have a bit of green stuck in my teeth. LOL, I know, some people won’t say anything because they’re worried it’d be awkward. Believe me, it’s more awkward when you’ve been wandering around, chatting with people with that little piece of green stuck in your teeth the whole time! Tell me so I can get rid of it and save myself from more embarrassment and deal with the problem immediately.
