Communication - Deepstash


  • Optimal communication means: respecting the other's self-esteem
  • We can only measure our own self-worth by comparing ourselves to others

  • Everything we do, we do ultimately to maintain, defend or improve our self-esteem
  • Any failure to comply with an internalized rule or prohibition attacks our self-esteem
