DEALING WITH NEGATIVES

WHEN YOU ARE ANGRY:
  • Stop and do nothing but breath
  • Identify the thoughts that are making you angry ("I am angry because I need ___.")
  • Connect to your needs behind those thoughts
  • Express your feelings and unmet needs appropriately
WHEN A NEGATIVE MESSAGE IS RECEIVED:
  • Sense your own feelings and needs and come from the "I" place: "I realize I feel __ when you __."
  • Sense the other's feelings and needs: "Are you feeling __ because you would like __?"
