As a coach, I have had the same conversation with scores of people, as they stalled out on the ending—letting someone know something is over—in either a personal or professional context. Why did the ending stall? After all, the deciding had been done, and they were certain they needed to go forward, but they still sat on it. Not because they were unsure or were afraid of the future. Not because they second-guessed their decisions or their mental maps prevented them from making it. The reason?
They dreaded the conversation.
