I’m what some would say ‘a straight talker’. Verbally, I say things quite bluntly – how they are.
People often don’t respond to ‘blunt’. They need a softly softly approach. And that’s the verbal communication style, I need to learn.
I emailed my counsellor today, to let her know I realise the following phrase, whilst true, about church people’s lack of keeping children safe , enabling predators, and absolute lack of wisdom…. is not gonna get church people to listen…
“You think you are full of grace, mercy and compassion…… but really you are just full of shit”.
I did have a giggle to myself. Because I can see how many church people would react to that!
When I know I need to work on something….. I do.
But, after a really shit weekend, it was good to have a giggle.
