The Root of Peace: Episode 205

"The root of violence is the belief that others are responsible for our pain and therefore deserve to be punished." Marshall Rosenberg, author of Nonviolent Communication

So what is the root of peace? Perhaps it's the belief that we are responsible for our own emotions, and that we deserve praise when we exercise it.

By using the techniques that Marshall Rosenberg explains in his book, we can learn to express our emotions in a way that doesn’t blame others, taking responsibility for our pain, our emotions and our experience of life.

Many times when we express our emotions in a descriptive way, explain our needs and make a reasonable request of others, they will be happy to do so, and they’ll even feel more comfortable expressing their own emotions in a healthy way, creating frictionless communication and more peace in the world.
