Use “I” statements under Communication Toolkit

Using ‘I’ statements is a powerful communication technique for strengthening or rebuilding a relationship. Instead of placing blame or making accusations, ‘I’ statements allow you to express your thoughts, feelings, and needs in a non-confrontational way. In our guide, we emphasize the importance of taking ownership of your own emotions and experiences by starting statements with ‘I feel,’ ‘I think,’ or ‘I need.’ By framing communication in this way, you avoid putting the other person on the defensive and create a more open and respectful dialogue. This encourages honest expression and fosters mutual understanding, paving the way for productive conflict resolution and deeper connection. By incorporating ‘I’ statements into your communication toolkit, you can cultivate a more harmonious and fulfilling relationship.
