Last week I shared a video on the importance of separating out fact from moralistic judgment when connecting with another person. If you missed that post, click here. This week I am talking about another everyday cause of human separation: using words that imply ‘wrongness’.
Using these words is likely to trigger defensiveness in the person we are wanting to connect with… and we often don’t realise the hidden judgment in these words, because we hear and use them several times a day.
If you enjoy this video, stay tuned next week when I will share a personal story of how indemic this is in the way we relate, and how I overcame this barrier to connection in a situation with my son.
