We often talk about a “better world,” but very few if any of us really know what that means. We just know that something feels wrong, and that it doesn’t have to be this way.
Say something real.
Speak from your authentic space.
Bypass that polite, carefully constructed, dancing-around-the-point, maybe-they’ll-infer-what-I-mean bullshit.
When we practice authentic, open communication as a rule, we lose the need to protect ourselves from attack, or to save up “doozies” to assail someone when a defensive moment arrives.
