Compassionate listening and loving speech are doors that can help us out of even the most difficult situations. Once we have listened with compassion, we can use loving speech to restore communication and understanding. To use loving speech means to speak in such a way that inspires joy, hope, and confidence in the other person. (Thich Nhat Hanh. How to Fight)
Wishing you peace and wellbeing as your speech inspires joy, hope, and confidence in others.
PS: Remember to hold the ones you love just a little closer and tighter this week (without expectations)
