I am here for you :These are times when people have forgotten the value of dialoguing with
respect for each other. Talking to each other about whatever is the problem, ironing out misunderstandings,
making compromises, coming up with a new agenda that pleases everyone, developing a give and take attitude
and forgiving mistakes, takes great strength and courage. Showing courtesy, being polite and good- mannered,
not using abusive language and listening to what the other person has to say diffuses violence immediately.
When you are able to do this, then you know that gentleness has taken over your work place.
Think of the different ways in which you can be violent with those around you.
Which of these are used in your workplace, homes and so on? Can you try some of the gentle
approaches instead of the violent ones this week?
Write to me if you feel that I can answer (or help find answers) about the various issues that
lead you away from leading a life of respect, dignity and deep consideration for those around you...
