Peace within me
Inspires peace within you.
Respect and care – that is all.

Space within my heart
Helps me to listen to you.
Space around you
Helps you to feel safe and respected.
Space around me
Keeps me safe and calm.

Know where the exits are.
You need an exit just as much as me.

Consent is everything.
I can offer, but I must not give
Unless my offer is accepted.

Backing away from you is a rejection.
It’s okay that you feel that,
But I also need to maintain space
So that I can feel safe,
And so I can be here with you.

“Thank you,”
These words mean more than we can imagine.
“I hear you.”
“That sucks.”
“Wow, I had no idea, I’m sorry.”
“We are all in this together.”
“Good to see you today.”
“I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow.”
