A strong human value/need is to have choice and the power to make a decision between two or more possibilities.  A value-based empathetic language of compassion is one that acknowledges choice in dialogue.  It translates the mundane “have to” consciousness into one of recognition that this too is a choice and translates it into using different phrases that create open-ended choices.

The value of choice is one of human’s greatest needs

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.  Imagine a moment what feelings arise for you when you consider not having a choice.  Do you sense a fight, flight or fright moment? 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.
