Today I dedicate this post to a very sensitive subject - to our needs. I say sensitive because it's hard to really see the needs out of all our own projections and judgements; well, at least that's what's happening to me quite often and then I'm stuck in there.
People are people. But why some of them enjoy cotributing to other people, while the others enjoy hurting other people? I never understood those people who were always determent to put me into a bad mood. I never understood the violence that I've heard about from the victims of crime I've worked with... The answer/excuse: 'people are people' was not enough for me.
So, if you face the same challanges as well, I chose for you today a person who has researched that subject for a while. He believes that the real communication can be achieved by meeting everyone's needs. I only chose video no.1, but if you like it, you can watch more videos or even the workshops of non-violent communication he has done. I hope the tips for better communication can help you during the interaction with other people - at home, at work, anywhere...
Today I say thank you to all those people who are able to meet everyone's needs when communicating and therefore live in peace.
With whom or where would you like to have a better communication and would love to meet your needs with the needs of the others? (What are your recepies?)
