Subject: The Words We Speak

Challenge your use of negative language and use a positive word or phrase in its place.

E.g. Negative (I hate it when you do….) Positive (I become unhappy when you do….I dislike when….)

Assert yourself by just asking for what you want with a positive or less harsh tone. Use of harsh words are a breeding ground for tension while assertiveness or use of words that give you more power allow you to regain control over your feelings. Remember, you control no one other than yourself.

She looks to begin dialogue on the environmental factors contributing to the mental and emotional decline of those we love.
