Week 36: Nonjudgmental Acceptance

Do you know any  people who stand by others no matter what? What characteristics does this require? What are the challenges? Begin this week by writing or talking to someone about such people. Feel free to consider fictional characters or those from history if it helps.

Having done that, think about a time when you administered or when you received some version of the "silent treatment". Reflect on that experience, doing so with as little judgment as you can. It can help to do this while pretending you are a journalist researching and then writing a story about the event.

Next, try to imagine what is the OPPOSITE of the silent treatment. As you gain some clarity about this, provide some version of the opposite to someone.

Reflect on your experience this week in your journal. Did you see something new emerge from within you?
