Half Full, Half Empty, Thinking

We might all claim that we are more half full thinkers than half empty. I guess this is half of the problem. But how does this type of thinking translate into conversation?

What about this?

When we have half empty thinking we would be more likely to start a conversation with
something like “I don’t appreciate that you….”

With half full thinking we would be more likely start a conversation with
something like “I do appreciate that you……, however I would even appreciate it more if you did this…..”

I think that appreciation is one of the operative words for half full thinking. So if we fail to appreciate someone else’s thinking and/or behaviour then we are half empty in our thinking.
