I forgive my impatience and I love how direct I am.

I choose to speak the Highest Truth I know.

I let go of self judgment when I share what I hear within.

I appreciate myself for being honest when I am clear.

Subtle or Direct?

What do you prefer?

Do you prefer people being nice or saying what they mean?

Do you like lots of words or concise statements?

Would you rather hear the whole story or the bottom line?

Everyone likes something different.

Some folks are story-tellers.

The humor, interest and energy is in telling the story.

Some folks just want to get to the point.

When we stop judging how people say what they are saying, we can really get the message.

When we listen to what others are really saying, we feel gratitude and respect.

When we hear what is being said from the heart, we know what is the other’s perspective.

When we honor the message being given, we know what is right and true for us.

Perhaps the confusion, conflict or resistance comes from not wanting to hear what is being said.

Perhaps the truth being shared is what we resist and dread.

Perhaps we don’t want to know what we already know is right and true.

Perhaps some prefer not hearing, knowing and honoring with is true for you.

Are you afraid to say what you want?

Do you resist knowing others want something else?

Do you prefer just doing things your own way?

Are you not really listening to the words others want to say?

Are you willing to assert your own choices and truths?

Are you allowing others to assert their choices too?

Do you continue to be kind to one and all?

Are you open to letting go of your position and allow others’ their say first?  

Bottom line, encourage others to tell their thoughts and feelings by being safe place.

Ask others if they want to hear your thoughts and feelings, to encourage safety for your sharing.

Create open communication, concise and direct or rambling sagas, by being an open willing listener.

Refrain from or forgive judgments, interrogation or unrequested commenting on others’ sharing.

We tend to copy the type of communication we are accustomed to without allowing others’ differences.

Give your listening and sharing time to observe what works and what doesn’t work.

Let others show you what they prefer.

Be clear about what you prefer and ask what works for them.

Our primary work in relationship is to create respect, honesty, kindness and safety.

First honor and listen to your Self.

Then be willing to respect and listen to others.

Allow everyone to have different ideas, opinions, beliefs and perspective.

Be a Safe place for all,

Betty Lue
