What we say to ourselves affects our relationships.
Here are some good thoughts:
- The more I can control my thoughts, the more I can control my words.
- Because I want a good relationship I find it easier to let go of my need to have everything fair.
- After I take a few deep, relaxing breaths, I can release the desire to say something judgmental.
- Because I value my relationship I release the need to be right.
- Because I know that we are different, I accept that we can disagree.
