But (Part 2)

To avoid using the conjunction ‘but’, try one of the following:
– Replace it with ‘and’ if possible. And connects and rewards the other person.
– Just put a full stop. Just stop. After a short pause, continue with your next statement.
– Try using ‘on one hand’ and ‘on the other hand’ when you want to give feedback for both good and bad behavior. This way both statements stand equal.
