How to Condescend to Her

I was speaking with Willow today and was being my usual condescending self.  I noticed a particular word I used that made almost everything condescending.

When I would ask her about her friends, I would call them her “little friends”.  When I asked about her workout, I called it her “little workout”.  When she told me about her future plans, I called them her “little goals”.

Calling everything “little” makes it seem unimportant or childlike and leaves her feeling like she is being talked down to.

Try using the word “little” when speaking to her.  It will make her feel as small as the subjects you talk about.
