Code of Kindly Communication
Talk to me kindly, so how?
Get to the point
– remain clear about your needs and expectations
– for yourself, but also for others
– say what you feel and what the facts are instead of criticizing and judging others
– think about how your words may be perceived by others
Tune in with your feelings
– they will be the first to tell you about unsatisfied needs
With acceptance and tolerance
– for others who have the right to differ from you and to feel and think differently from you
You have the right to freedom of speech
– but the limit of this freedom is the dignity of the other person, and we must not cross this limit
