When I first read The Four Agreements in 2017 and came across this phrase “Be impeccable with your word,” I figured I could skip ahead to the second agreement. I thought to myself, “I don’t lie. I’m honest and always tell the truth.” However, this agreement is much deeper than these concepts of lies, truths, and honesty.

I learned, though, that the words I tell myself, the words I use to describe and label my experiences of the world matter. Words influence the ways I show up (or don’t) for friendships.

Today and the following 2 Tuesdays, I’ll be sharing a blog series that applies The Four Agreements to Friendship. If you haven’t read the book, NO WORRIES, you’ll be able to follow along and take away practical tools.
