While we tend to think of angry people being rude and caustic, it is possible for angry people to maintain calmness in the midst of that emotion. Calm, firm individuals are seeking respect, and they choose to make their presentation of anger consistent with respect. This podcast will examine that even when you cannot make others act properly in moments of anger, you can still be emotionally steady within yourself.

Something to Think about:

  • Calmly firm people take their cues from inside themselves as opposed to taking cues from others.
  • Calm firmness is grounded in the realization that others do not owe you.
  • In calmness, you can speak your convictions without having to be persuasive or combative.

Let’s Talk:

In what circumstances is it least natural to be both angry and calm? What would you need to adjust inside yourself in order for you to be angry and calm at the same time?

The phrase “you need to” means you are probably offering advice the other person does not want. While exchanges of perspectives and information can be good, too much of a good thing can perpetuate a feeling of defeat. In this podcast we will explore ways to eliminate defeat at home by finding positive alternatives to “you need to.”

Something to Think about:

  • Unsolicited advice, no matter how well intended, is commonly received as criticism.
  • Your perspectives will be received in direct proportion to your willingness to elicit input from the other person.
  • As your communication is more of a two-way process, you have less of a chance for the build up of defeated emotion.

Let’s Talk:

  • What happens inside your home when advice is given too frequently? What adjustments could you make to create balance in this matter?

Description:
What would you think if I suggested that meekness can be a beginning point for power and influence (of a good nature)? Meekness is best described as strength under control, or better yet, it is wisdom in action. Meek people pursue personal goals within the context of goodness and they seek to build community. In this podcast we will identify seven essential ways to put meekness into wise action.

Something to Think about:

  • Meek people understand their own basic needs, so they then apply that same understanding toward others.
  • Meek people want others’ days to be better because of their presence in it.
  • Meek people are less concerned about their rights and more concerned about being responsible.

Let’s Talk Question:
In what ways could you adjust your priorities so you could incorporate more meekness in your relationship style?

Description:

While many people assume that disagreements and fights go hand in hand, it does not have to be that way. Disagreements are a part of any long-term relationship, so it is necessary to have solid rules of engagement to keep tensions in check. This podcast will identify 12 essential ideas that will keep arguments from turning ugly.

Something to Think about:

 

  • With a mind of maturity you can accept that disagreements happen.
  • It is quite reasonable to expect disagreements to be managed with diplomacy and tact.
  • Coordination, not winning, is the goal when addressing disagreements.

 

 

Let’s Talk Question:

In your home what can cause arguments to turn ugly?  In those moments what are the better alternatives?
