A way of living- the NVC model offers us these and more… want a quick injection… try these out….
That we are all trying to meet needs in every moment not getting things wrong or being bad
That feelings arise from needs met or unmet not because of actions of others
That there is another way of seeing the world- that human beings are natural givers and receivers of love
An understanding that expressing our feelings and needs can be a vulnerable choice yet holds power
That there is a choice in how we hear messages coming our way- we are free to choose every time
That pain can shift with self empathy
That reaching out for help does not make one weak
That we do have choice in every moment
And things to really hold onto in ourselves
That being honest in ourselves can shift us into acceptance and peace
That being with pain does actually support it
Only when I’m’ really honest with myself- even to those sneaky jackals- yes all of them.. will I be congruent = be in my power.
That NVC is a way of living and not everyone wants to live this way and that’s ok.
So how do we share this without sounding weird? Or preachy or pushy?
