It is a win/win strategy~
In a healthy environment, people place a high value on keeping the relationship and are willing to communicate;
Listen, and understand each other to work things out in a calm and loving way. Therefor people are always motivated to share their thoughts & feelings freely as they feel valued, heard and appreciated.
But in toxic environment!
"Most people don't listen with the intent to understand they listen with the intent to reply".
In such environment, even if you win you will lose..
Making decision to make our life a drama-free zone is one of the best decisions we can make for our life.
We should only become involved with people who know how to communicate because people who can't communicate, everything's an argument for them!
We don't owe anyone anything except the same amount of respect they show you. We teach people how to treat us and we allow what we tolerate~
Many people need to break up their attachments to toxic environments and people. Learn to walk away before you have to run.
Let us "raise our words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” Rumi
