LIFE ALIENATING LANGUAGE
Marshall Rosenberg differentiates between language and thinking that is 'life alienating' and habitual and language and thinking that is 'life supporting' and natural.
Life alienating language is connected to our fight/flight/freeze/fawn natural reaction to danger. Bringing a 'needs consciousness' to our sense of danger creates an inner warming process and supports self-care, self-connection, choice and agency.
The human species cannot be 'punished into' a 'better' way of being in the world.
