Last year, I wrote "I've decided I want to try only making invitations
for a while," and got some replies I enjoyed a lot. I'd been talking
about how "requests" didn't seem to me to be in line with what we're
wanting when we "do" NVC.
I've spend the last year working with this idea, subjecting it to
criticism, holding it up to the light. And I've concluded that I
really don't have much use for requests. I'm done with them. They
don't lead to connection in my life. More often, they lead to
stuckness, and reactions of compliance or rebellion, neither of which
appeals to me.
I'm wondering if anybody else has worked with this idea over the past
year, and what results you've come up with? Is there any reason to
hang on to requests as part of our understanding of nvc (or nvc2.0)?
By the way, I'm moving to Central Ohio, and would love to connect with
people there. Drop me a line if you're nearby!

This formalistic language - I sometimes feel it is making me more rigid, less flexible and spontaneous. I believe that once the intention and understanding of NVC is ingrained the language might come by itself, yet it needs another way of relating to it.
