USE YOUR SHIELD
SPEAK YOUR TRUTH
CHALLENGE 1: USE YOUR SHIELD
PUT DOWN YOUR SWORD AND PICK UP YOUR SHIELD
The next time you feel triggered in by another, LISTEN before acting or speaking. Use the shield on yourself to create a safe place for you to reflect. Use mindful observation and qualify whether this is a battle worth fighting or if it's a simple misunderstanding. Speak your TRUTH before initiating or defending.
QUALIFICATION PHRASES: Would I rather be right or happy? Is this battle worth fighting for?
It is also important to note that everyone has their OWN truth. There is no right or wrong here and everyone is entitled to their own truth. Their truth does not undermine or threaten your truth.
CHALLENGE 2: SPEAK YOUR TRUTH
THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE
Ask Yourself these questions:
How can I understand this through his/her perspective? How can I communicate my own perspective to him/her so they understand?
DELIVERY AND TIMING IS EVERYTHING
Begin a statement or truth with "I" instead of "you." Only communicate about your views, perception and feelings. Don't assume to know what the other feels/thinks/experiences.
Communicating effectively when there is a misunderstanding follows these steps:
My assumption has been ....
I think I have believed this because ....
This makes me feel ....
What I can do to resolve this struggle I have is ....
What you can do to help me is ....
my hope is ....
