The Four Agreem…

The Four Agreements

Be Impeccable With Your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

Don’t Take Anything Personally: Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Don’t Make Assumptions: Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

Always Do Your Best: Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

  1. I agree that we should speak truthfully, but for me there are exceptions. If I feel that someone can be dangerous & they have my personal info, then I will sugarcoat my words or stretch the truth to avoid hurting them, being stalked, harassed, or getting physically or financially hurt. Yes, I’m talking about relationships that get weird after you’ve invested yourself into them. Sometimes it is hard to get out when the other person won’t or can’t listen clearly. People say or do things that makes you wonder what they are capable of. At that point I become creative rather than saying that I’m not interested in taking the relationship any further. Other than that, yes, only truthfulness.
