“Understanding and support are not synonymous. Support says, ‘anything you say I will agree with’. Understanding says ‘I hear what is troubling you and I want to do what I can to help you through it.”

[Joan Chittister, The Monastic Way]


“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world,” writes Tony Robbins, author and motivational speaker, “and use this understanding as a guide to communication with others.”


May our differences be blessed to bridge the words between us.
