Life Area: Autonomy
It is this need that could be the source of all moralistic judgments and passive and aggressive violence. If there is no choice, the options are to fight or give in.

Learning self-empathy steps and those for empathetic listening of others will shift those in the conversation into an experience of choice.
Practice your empathy skills this week.
