  1. Wonderful blog, Chris. So open and giving. You reminded me of this simple poem that I learned when studying Non Violent Communication ( or Compassionate Communication, which I prefer)

    Words are Windows (Or They’re Walls), a poem by Ruth Bebermeyer

    I feel so sentenced by your words
    I feel so judged and sent away
    Before I go I got to know
    Is that what you mean to say?

    Before I rise to my defense,
    Before I speak in hurt or fear,
    Before I build that wall of words,
    Tell me, did I really hear?

    Words are windows, or they’re walls,
    They sentence us, or set us free.
    When I speak and when I hear,
    Let the love light shine through me.

    There are things I need to say,
    Things that mean so much to me,
    If my words don’t make me clear,
    Will you help me to be free?

    If I seemed to put you down,
    If you felt I didn’t care,
    Try to listen through my words
    To the feelings that we share.
