SPEAK FOR YOURSELF




"An open ear is the only believable sign of an open
heart."
-- David Augsburger


We can easily get into trouble in relationships when we
assume that we know what someone else is thinking or
feeling. Parents, in particular, can be quick to judge
what's going on in their children.


Rather than assuming we know someone else's experience,
we could shift our perceptions into questions. Instead
of saying, 'I know you're hurting,' we could ask, 'Are
you feeling hurt?' This allows us to connect with the
other with no risk of misunderstandings.


"It's always wise to raise questions about the most
obvious and simple assumptions."
-- C. West Churchman


"To assume is to be deceived."
-- Yiddish proverb
