How to use it
When a story in your head is bringing you confusion, anger or sadness ask for clarity!
Share. Be vulnerable. Here is where my mind has taken me.
Did I get that right?
Then Listen as the other person clarifies.
And try repeating their version back to them, finishing with “did I get that right?”
A great card for deescalating misunderstandings!
