If you want to reflect on what you want to say you should go through Socrates’ Triple Filter test. Truth is the first filter. Are you saying something that is true? If what you will say is not true, then you should not say it. Even if what you will say is true, you still need to filter it to the next level. Goodness is the second filter. when something is good, it must be beneficial to the listener. You should not say something that will not benefit or will hurt another even if it is the truth. There is a final filter after truth and goodness. Appropriateness is the last filter. For it to be appropriate, it must be the right time to say it, the right place to say it, and you should say it to the right person. Your motive for saying something is good if you pass your speech through the triple filter test and it is not something that has some hidden agenda. You should be mindful of a few thing when speaking. Being mindful means noticing that the words you speak are appropriate and accurately sending the message you want to send. The tone of your voice should be watched also. Is your tone friendly, warm, or hostile? Are you criticizing or judging? Body language, gestures, and posture is something you should be mindful of too. Speaking in a friendly manner is very welcome to any listener, instead of speaking harsh words. Just keep on practicing these steps and you will soon find yourself being consciously mindful of all the things mentioned above. If you want to transform your relationship in a positive way, then be mindful of how to speak to others.
