Virtual Sit-and-Share Topic 19-02-2023

I have come to a frightening conclusion.
I am the decisive element…
It is my personal approach that creates the climate.
It is my daily mood that makes the weather.
I possess tremendous power to make a person’s life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.
I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.
In all situations it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a person humanized or de-humanized.
