You are responsible for your impact on others, they are responsible for how they deal with it. So ask yourself before you say something ask yourself these 5 questions.
Is this kind?
Is this mindful?
Is this of service?
Will this help or have a good effect on the other person?
Is this more about me than them?
So many times we speak or tell others without thought to our impact on them emotionally. We are not responsible for them emotionally but we are responsible for how we affect others. So today, lets take a moment before we say something and make sure it is kind.

Conscious thought given to the words that we use is important. Especially when we want to connect and communicate with those that we care about.
I agree! We may not notice our effect so if we are conscious we can connect in a much more effective and loving way.
Great points. There is a fine line here. Recently I shared some information with someone that felt very positive but she took it the total opposite way. I could not have known how she would react. I would’ve had to be a mind reader. I guess all we can do is our best AND share and respond from our hearts! Thanks again! Wendy
This goes back to think before you speak. Communication is a powerful tool and you have given us five questions that are so simple, yet so powerful.
Great reminder Michelle. I also like to ask myself if something is true and if it’s the right time to speak before speaking. Communication is key. Thanks for the powerful reminder.
