Should is an extremely disempowering word that we all use to beat up ourselves and others. I call this particular weapon The Should Stick.
How does it feel when you hear “What you should do is __________,” or
“You should not have _________”? Should implies wrong doing. The implication is to put down the should stick that we are using to beat up ourselves and other people.
***Let's LISTEN for and eliminate 'should' from our vocabularies.***
Should = What I want or would want to happen.
"What you should do is _____."
"I/You should have done _______ instead of _______."
"I/You should not have _______."
