Mindful Communication

Notice the following themes when you communicate in this way:

  • The absence of blame towards others and yourself.

  • The absence of accusing, righteousness, and victimizing.

  • Ownership of your feelings rather than "you made me feel"

  • A sharing of yourself for the sake of understanding and connection.

  • Absence of winning, being right, or proving yourself.

  • Curiosity instead of unchecked assumptions, interpretations and conclusions.
