It was really scary honesty as I knew that it would be very challenging for the other person to hear it. I celebrate that I used selfempathy and the empathic support of my trainer collegues to prepare my selfexpression and to go with an open heart into the dialog. With the careful sorrouding of the other participants we managed to have a honest and empathic giraffe dance and found a wonderful solution that worked for all of us.
