“When we are internally violent towards ourselves, it is difficult to be genuinely compassionate towards others.” Marshall RosenbergDo you find yourself repeating unhealthy relationship dynamics? Being misunderstood or not heard? Feeling resentful and unable to say ‘no’? Confused about how you feel and what you want? Suppressing your feelings until you explode? Beating up on yourself when you act in ways you regret? Learning NVC can help you become aware of communication habits that inadvertently push others away from you, make your message hard to hear or leave you feeling disempowered, and empower you with choice to communicate from a place of clarity and compassion.
