When we’re annoyed with each other, our hearts become distanced. And as the distance between our hearts increases, our tone gets louder. We say words that widen the distance between us.
Next time you find yourself getting louder because you’re annoyed; bring your heart a little closer. Cover that distance by opening your heart to understand another better.
When our hearts are closer, our tone is softer. And as a result, we’re able to hear each other better.
