This is great! I think it is so important to think about maintaining self-respect in conflict, and how this can have such far-reaching benefits for ourselves and anyone we're communicating with. I love that this acknowledges fairness to both parties. Thank you for sharing!

Maintaining love and empathy. These are always two keys in the process of support. It is so important for us to recognize all links to suicidal behavior and ideation. Anxiety is no doubt, a clearly linked one and it's crucial for us to acknowledge this connection and open this line of communication. Together, through communication and connection, we can offer the support needed.
