People often experience conflicts between different values in certain situations.
“I want to be kind, but I also want to be honest.”
“ I want to be honest, but I also want to have friends.”

A simple change that can have a profound impact — replace the word “but” with “and.”
“I want to be kind, and I want to be honest.”
“I want to be honest, and I also want to have friends.”
“But” separates experiences  and tends to erase or discard whatever precedes the “but.”
“And” joins experiences and acknowledges both.
