The Hungry Duck

Please only fulfill this request
if you can do it with the joy
of a small child feeding a hungry duck.

Please do not oblige me if you feel
coercion of any kind, such as by guilt,
shame, punishment, reward, duty,
or obligation”

This is a card to hand out after making a request. Based on NVC – Marshall Rosenberg.

Been finding many more great resources:
