“No one heals himself by wounding another.”
— Saint Ambrose (Christianity)

Today’s Excerpt:

Look at this image, which shows three different kinds of mindsets.

  • The Empowered Mindset is direct and kind.
  • The Bully Mindset is rude and cruel.
  • The Victim Mindset is passive and powerless.

Explain that we can cause harm in one of two ways: By being rude or cruel instead of direct — or by being passive or powerless instead of kind.

It’s best to choose the middle way — be direct and kind.

Optional: Describe a time when you’ve been direct and kind, or when someone has been direct and kind with you.
