Conflict is contagious. Don’t let a virus infect your relationships.
True to her straightforward and unpretentious style, in Keep Your Distance! Your guide to handling common dilemmas in uncommon times, Rosalinda Oropeza Randall candidly explores relationships and real-life dilemmas in a pandemic world.
The book covers sticky situations as well as areas of deeper concern. As always, Rosalinda offers general advice, options, and perspectives, with a sense of humor and without imposing her opinions or claiming to know it all.
Keep Your Distance addresses everyday situations that now have a kink in them. From holding conversations with face masks, to dealing with so much family time, roommates and house guests, returning to work, confronting social pressures (like your friend who keeps trying to sell you stuff), travel dilemmas, to well-meaning neighbors bringing you homemade soups. This book covers all aspects of everyday life in a pandemic world.
Who’s right? We all are, in our own mind. But when we are all faced with unfamiliar situations, it can be challenging to handle. Keep Your Distance will help you explore these situations so you can find graceful solutions that help preserve your relationships AND your peace of mind.
Keep Your Distance illustrates that civility can be practiced, even in these uncertain times.
