The Royal We

 

DalaiLamaDesmondTutu

The Dalai Lama and Bishop Desmond Tutu, in The Book of Joy… say that people who frequently use the words “I” “me” and “mine” are prone to isolation, loneliness, depression, anxiety. Things like that. Because their thoughts and words don’t connect them to other people. We are trying to shift our thinking and speaking. Feels a little like the royal plural, but you gotta start somewhere.
