Conflict Resolution

Respect the Root

“Respect is at the root of love. Be still. Know that you don’t have to coax anyone to hold you in high regard. When love is intentional + authentic, there will be no anxiety about reciprocity. Connections meant for you won’t be second-guessed or filled with uncertainty. Free yourself from relationships that leave you feeling insignificant.” – Alex Elle

Resist the Urge

“The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.” – Dorothy Nevill

Holding Out for a Hero

“The simple act of caring is heroic.” – Edward Albert

Pull Together

“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals.” – Jean Vanier

Your Choice

“You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.” – William Wilberforce

Shared Power

“The characteristics of healthy boundaries include self-respect; non-tolerance of abuse or disrespect; responsibility for exploring and nurturing personal potential; two-way communication of wants, needs, and feelings; expectations of reciprocity; and sharing responsibility and power.” – Laurie Buchanan

It’s Not You, It’s Me

“A codependent person is one who has let another person’s behavior affect him or her, and who is obsessed with controlling that person’s behavior.” Melody Beattie

What do you Stand For?

“Staying silent is like a slow growing cancer to the soul. There is nothing intelligent about not standing up for yourself. You may not win every battle. However, everyone will at least know what you stood for – YOU.” – Shannon L. Alder

The Key

“I am thankful the most important key in history was invented. It’s not the key to your house, your car, your boat, your safety deposit box, your bike lock, or your private community. It’s the key to order, sanity, and peace of mind. The key is ‘Delete.’” – Elayne Boosler

Three Gates

“Before you speak let your words pass through three gates. At the first gate ask, ‘Is it true?’ At the second gate ask, ‘Is it necessary?’ At the third gate ask, ‘Is it kind?’” – Sufi Saying
