Nonviolent Communication

Some ideas from Nonviolent Communication. Possibly useful? I don't even remember where I picked them up.

  • Conceptualize your depression not it terms of moralistic judgment but it terms of unmet needs.
  • Expressing negative wants without positive wants pushes one to consider violence. (“Dead children break no windows.”)
  • Describe and request specific actions (“do”, not “be”).
