"We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are"

"We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are"

"When you did this, I felt that...."

Does laboriously trying to get the other person to hear our story deeply dissolve workplace conflict and build trust and respect?

We hear and speak through innately subjective filters and become very attached to our stories/versions to organise our experience.

During restorative mediations, the attachment to the story or the need to 'be right' is gradually superseded by self-reflection, personal accountability and ultimately a preference for inner peace.

Once we are willing to see ourselves, we become more available to compassionately see others.
