Offering from Higgins:
Do not allow others speak to you unkindly or angrily. Gently, lovingly tell them, “Friend, please find another way to say that for what you said, the way you said it, was unkind to me.”
And you yourself speak kindly.
Words are powerful. Speak to one another with reverence, as though in prayer, and wonderful things will happen in your world.
