Turn Your Words

June 16, 2014

in the generous life

Tempted to speak a negative? How can you turn it into a kinder more positive connection with your man?

“I hate it when you leave your tools all over the place. You’re driving me nuts!” can become, “Hon, you did a beautiful job! Can I help you finish the clean up?”

“Will you stop with the football games! I’m sick of football.” can become, “At half time would you take a quick walk around the yard with me? I’d love to show you something.” (then sit and enjoy part of the game with him)

It boils down to thinking before you speak. How can you show that you value him and invite him to connect (either in his world or yours). I know sometimes, you just have to talk about what is bothering you and that’s OK (it’s healthy to talk about what you need and want), but, when you can, gently turn your words to bless him and connect with him.

Gentle words, quiet words, are after all the most powerful words. They are more convincing, more compelling, more prevailing.   Washington Gladden
