I’m feeling a reawakening of myself.
I’ve been lucky enough to be spending some time with Krista and her family lately and she’s really energised me to tap into my NVC roots. I don’t think all that I’ve learned and applied to my life, in regards to NVC has disappeared over the years but in actually using the terms and wording again, I’m back on the path to growing and learning.
Years ago, I met someone online with similar values and interests. We also had daughters who were only months apart in age. It was lovely. We each only had one baby in our care and talked everyday, sometimes for hours while we nursed, cooked, cleaned…. Our NVC style conversations were the most amazingly helpful and fulfilling chats. Being heard and understood, and sharing empathy was so… what we needed. Anyway, life happened and we lost touch. :( I’ve been really enjoying connecting again with someone who’s as interested in NVC as I was/am.
I feel inspired and I feel energised! Thank you, Krista!
Cam and I have been listening to the NVC audio cd’s my friend had made me years ago. I’d forgotten that I even had them! It’s a thrill to see efforts being made by not only Cam but occasionally my daughter as well, in holding off on making a reaction and look for a more compassionate way to communicate.
