Number 2 is one I’ve been consciously working on for a while.

In a discussion I don’t want to say “you’re right” or “you’re wrong,” I would rather say “that’s right” or “that’s wrong.”

This distinction is important because it can keep people from becoming too defensive. Especially in a time period where people’s identities are so wrapped up in what they believe.

We can unintentionally hurt people with our words when we make it about them.

And I ain’t going out like that, boiiiii!
