And everyone around us speaks one.
But which one?
- The language of warmth may be untrusting or wary of your intentions. These want to know that you understand; from that relief and excitement comes an interest in what you have to say.
- The language of strength may be tired of time-wasters who don’t keep their word. These want to know you deliver, consistently; from trust comes respect, and an interest in what have you say.
We’re never told which we need to speak. We figure it out as we go. Being bilingual enables us to create relief and trust, excitement and respect, and permission to give the gift of our ideas.
