Nonviolent Communication

Postby oak » November 7th, 2017, 4:22 pm

Hi friends.

The wonderful Namu recommended "Living Nonviolent Communication". I have begun said book, and I am astonished at the amount of violent communication I receive daily in my professional and family life. How much violence I accept. That I have taken as "normal". If this is normal, I don't want normal anymore. :)

(Interestingly, and tellingly, I am almost always treated very respectfully by friends, acquaintances, and strangers. While not all family and professional communication I receive is wholly violent [I have many kind and wonderful work colleagues, and one of my sisters treats me respectfully], I perceive enough violence to read the book and post here.)

A few pages in to the book, I have already written seven professional needs I've identified. I am currently receiving one of those seven needs.

I'll post here, as I read, apply, and consider the outcomes of the book's suggestion.

I also hope the amazing Namu can share some insights!
