Over the last couple of weeks, we have talked about the four-point script (Safety –> Facts –> My Story –> Your Story) that is explained by the book Crucial Conversations, but was originally pioneered by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 1-3. (Side Note: We also talked about Crucial Accountability conversations too.) You can catch up on both talks about communication here.
One person sent in three follow-up question on the topic. I thought they were excellent:
"Hi! I had a question about crucial conversations. As far as I'm aware of, I don't need to have one, but I was just curious.

(2) Or what if they're deaf?
(3) Also, you were talking about how to tell if you need to have a crucial conversation, or if you're just overly sensitive. What are you supposed to do if you are overly sensitive?
Thank you! God bless you!"
Here were the verses I referred to in my answer:
