- Three qualities of interdependence and shared responsibility:
- Recognize that I have freedom of choice regarding my actions. Nobody can force me to do anything – I always have some degree of choice.
- Be curious about the impacts of my choices on myself and others. Recognize that these impacts may be different from my intentions.
- Take responsibility for the quality of my own experience – and allow others to take responsibility for the quality of theirs! I can care about and empathize with the experience of others without taking responsibility for it.
- One strategy to help another person hear my feedback is to begin by saying, “I invite you to hear this as my experience.” Keep in mind that I have no control over how someone else hears me, regardless of how carefully I speak.
