RELATIONSHIPS /// CHAPTER 61
Communicating
Effectively with
Friends and
Family
Cancer is a tough
topic to talk about
(no kidding!).
You may have stuff that you want to know but you're not sure how to ask or who to ask.
You may have many fears and concerns but don't want to worry or upset people.
While lots of pamphlets and videos show families all sitting around sharing their
innermost thoughts, the reality is not all families talk openly and honestly about things
that are happening or their feelings. A cancer diagnosis isn't going to change that
overnight. How your family communicates about cancer may depend on how you have
always communicated.
It's going to be hard. But the longer you avoid talking about what is really going on, the
harder it will be. You've heard it before, but not talking about it won't make it go away.
You shouldn't go through this alone and you may be surprised how much better it is when
things are out in the open. So, the trick is to find the right time and the right way for you to
talk about stuff.
Things to think about:
» There is no right or wrong way to talk about cancer.
» Let people know that you want to talk about it. People
might avoid bringing up your cancer because they are
afraid of upsetting you.
» It can be difficult to talk if there is a big gap between
what you want to talk about and what everyone else
wants to talk about.
» It is most important that you talk to people who you trust
and feel comfortable with. It is OK if this is someone
outside your family.
» Being afraid or scared that you will upset people can
often hold you back from talking about how you are
really feeling or what is really going on for you.
