- Please don’t ever say that, “he/she made me feel ___(fill in the blank with any emotion___.)” Only you can manage your feelings. When you say that someone made you feel a certain way, you have just handed your power over to him or her. If you want to convey your feelings to someone, use I statements, “I feel ______ when you _______.” This sentence is much more constructive and will lead to more communication and probable resolution. Choose not to be a victim and make positive changes.
- Please don’t ever say that you are bored. Bored people are boring (like Mr. Knit Knots on Imagination Movers). You have a mind (not to mention a million toys and books) at your disposal. Use them. You will become a more enlightened person because of it.
