Dropping the defenses

If you can just ask, get clarification, get to the bottom of things without the sarcasm, the sideways remarks, the negative assumptions, the defensive or offensive position, or avoidance… if you could be open to identifying Truth rather than protecting the parts of you that might no longer serve you… it might change the trajectory of your relationships. Most importantly, your relationship with yourself. From there, whichever way they go is in your favor.
