Anger, Shame and Growth

ROA_3630

“Having and authentic voice means that:

– We can openly share competence as well as problems and vulnerability.

– We can warm things up and calm them down.

– We can listen and ask questions that allow us to truly know the other person and to gather information about anything that may affect us.

– We can say what we think and feel, state differences, and allow the other person to do the same.

– We can define our values, convictions, principles, and priorities, and do our best to act in accordance with them.

– We can define what we feel entitled to in a relationship, and we can clarify the limits of what we will tolerate or accept in another’s behavior.

– We can leave (meaning that we can financially and emotionally support ourselves), if necessary.”
Harriet Lerner, Ph.D., The Dance of Connection: How to Talk to Someone When You’re Mad, Hurt, Scared, Frustrated, Insulted, Betrayed, or Desperate
