To Love First is to recognize that both parties have a right to respect and to be heard. To enter any negotiation, discussion, or conversation with “I am right you are wrong” is to prepare for a fight. Before speaking or writing to anyone where there is disagreement it is best to fully examine the difference between what you WANT and what you NEED. And then, when you understand your own position, ask yourself how you want both parties to feel when the discussion is over. With this in mind, you will always enter these situations with more grace and balance.
“Today I will take the time to envision a positive outcome from my interactions so that I may be guided to a peaceful compromise.”
