Leading with love does not mean you’re a “yes” person.
You can be direct.
You can be honest
You can say “no.”
You can have difficult conversations, complicated emotions, and speak your mind fully.
But the difference is that you’re acknowledging that the person you’re communicating with is also a full human being that deserves courtesy and kindness.
You might hurt their feelings sometimes.
That’s hard to avoid.
But you can be honorable with yourself and others and still communicate the truth.
