Today I go deeper into words like “should,” “must,” “need to,” and “have to.” According to Marshall Rosenberg, author of Non-violent Communication, this type of language actually serves the purpose of allowing us to deny responsibility for our thoughts, words, and actions.
As creators of our own lives, we don’t want to fall into the illusion that we are not responsible for those lives. Whether it’s a seemingly small thing like planning our day, or a seemingly large thing like standing up for what we believe in, our own sense of agency will determine the quality and power of our commitments.
