Happy Sunday! This weekend was full of internal adventure and exploration as I attended a NonViolent Communication Workshop with others who value communication, connection, and growth.
This weekend, we talked about things going on in our life and identified our feelings, and more importantly, our needs. Our feelings arise from met or unmet needs and if we can identify them, it gives us a clue into what’s important to us.
Our trainer told us to get curious about the emotions that come up. When we have judgments, criticisms, and blame, to welcome it and ask questions. These questions give us the opportunity to identify our needs and then ask for them. MIND BLOWN.
And, I also realized, it’s okay to have needs. It’s okay to be human and to want these amazing qualities in my life.
I love my ability to meet my own needs, to take personal responsibility for my feelings, and know that I matter.
What do you love about you?
