You and I, we and us

Am I moving forward? Or are we moving forward? It’s such a simple thing, but the use of pronouns makes a huge difference in communication. Whenever we’re in a group situation, it’s important to think as a group, to take initiative as a group, and to take responsibility as a group. One of the best ways to show solidarity for the group is through cognisant use of pronouns. When giving advice as well, you can really make someone feel like you are on their team by using a collective pronoun; you and I versus we and us.

Next time you’re in a team meeting or similar, take note of the pronouns used, and if you’re part of a team, really think about whose team you’re really on.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
