Mean What We Say

Remember the phrase ‘say what you mean and mean what you say’? The thing is, sometimes things slip out and we realize we let our impulses take over. Other times we say something that is misinterpreted and we didn’t mean any harm. In either case, we can easily hurt others and be hurt with ‘mean-ness’, and the conflict becomes one of explaining ourselves while not always acknowledging the impact.

How may you mean what you say in a conflict without being mean?
