Cussing at Work

Cussing at Work

Dear Employees:

It has been brought to management's attention that some individuals throughout the company have been using foul language during the course of normal conversation with their co-workers.

Due to complaints received from some employees who may be easily offended, this type of language will no longer be tolerated.

We do, however, realize the critical importance of being able to accurately express your feelings when communicating with co-workers.

Therefore, a list of 18 New and Innovative 'TRY SAYING' phrases have been provided so that proper exchange of ideas and information can continue in an effective manner.

Love it Linda, how easily we can flip the coin to use much more positive words/phrases, what a good teaching for me, as i have a tendency to swear when i get Angry. I also realize that emotions can be flipped, instead of removing emotions like Anger, Hatred, Jelousy, Despair, Rejection, Self-Pity/Sorrow, Controling, Domination, Cruelty... They all have an opposite, learning how to flip the coin can bring about Inner Peace.

Flipping the coin of our Emotions

Anger now turns into Empathy & Forgiveness
Hatred now turns into Love
Jelousy now turns into Trust
Despair now turns into Hope
Rejection now turns into Acceptance
Self/Pity/Sorrow now turns into Gratefulness/Joy
Controling now turns into Letting Go Of...
Domination now turns into Open Mindedness
Cruelty now turns into Kindness

Many Blessings

Absolutely Linda

The flipping of the emotions came from a show i watched called the Buddha, a 2 hour documentary about Buddhas life. Your post Inspired me to look up opposites of each emotion on the Internet & realized that your post spoke of exactly what i learned from the show.

Hope people will benefit from them.

Many Blessings

This video reflects this subject very well, i did look for the part where it talks about the flipping of the coin, but could not find it, i learned a lot from this documentary, if you enjoy the Video below you can find more information on the full length movie here: http://www.pbs.org/thebuddha/
