Why a Clean Up Telegram?
- To help people return to feeling peaceful with each other after a conflict
- To help people learn that it is natural to mess up with each other
- To help people practice owning a little piece of a breakdown so we can end the blame game with each other and practice being accountable
Few of us are taught that healthy relationships are built on 1/3 peaceful good times, 1/3 ruptures and 1/3 repair (clean-up). When we can try to own a little bit of a mess that has been made, we become more trustworthy and grow closer.
Think of a telegram as a tool to help you understand how you are feeling inside and to help others who care about you, understand you better too.
Be Brave: Fill one out and share it. Slide it under a door. Fold it into a paper airplane and fly it in to someone you love. Leave it on your loved one’s pillow or on their car seat or tuck it in a safe place for your own reflection.
