at the end of my statement. When I shared this practice with friends, like me, they immediately thought of the person(s) they judged harshly and added the phrase. I thought of someone I think is a liar, and instead of holding on to my label of this person, I said, "They're a liar, just like me." The phrase slowed me down to think about my perceptions of truth. And to determine how I can speak in alignment with my vision of an open-hearted call for connection.
Where can you add this phrase? Let me know what you learn.
May your day be filled with awareness.
