‘My neighbours granddaughter deliberately parks her car so its hard to get out of the drive!!! She knows it upsets me and I’m so wind up I could cry!’
I am feeling…..Agitated / Distracted / Wound up
Step 1. (How I would like to feel…)
Calm / Centred / Non- Judgemental
Step 2. (Quality Questions for self…)
How can I handle this and get the best result?
Am I in the right frame of mind to tackle it at the moment?
Who is it best to approach over this matter?
Step 3. (Practical steps leading to Positive Results…)
Don’t jump to conclusions around someone else’s motive, they may not even be aware of the distress they are causing
Let go of thinking they have done something on purpose.
Approach the owner of the house in a polite, friendly way, with concern that the offending car may get knocked and damaged.
(Come from the point of view you are thinking of them!)
