In this house we do not criticize each other. We do not mock each other. We do not point fingers. We do not rehash the past. We do not hold a grudge. We do not ignore each other. We do not lie. We do not expect more of each other than we’re willing to give. We do not tear each other down.
In this house we treat each other as equals. We honor boundaries. We speak kindly. We encourage each other. We tell the truth. We ask why, what are you feeling, and what do you need. We forgive. We forget. We move on. We support and encourage each other. We say please and thank you and it’s okay. We say I am sorry.
In this house we love each other and ourselves.
In this house we respect each other and ourselves.
In this house we are home, and we are safe.
