Someone (I don’t know who) said this:
“I’ve found that teaching my children to ask the following four questions has helped them navigate conflict and come out the other side more self-aware:
1. What was my role in creating this conflict?
2. Does the way I’ve acted during this conflict represent the kind of person I want to be?
3. Are the decisions I’ve made during this conflict in line with the kind of person I want to be?
4. If I saw someone else behave in the way I’ve behaved during this conflict, what would I think?”
Personally, I find that the best thing I can do in my life right now, as a 68-year-old adult, is to ask those very same questions!
