By “joining” this support group, you take the following pledges…

1.  I pledge to be open to the possibility of my own biases.

2.  I pledge to reserve judgments about my fellow PARBs.*

3.  I pledge to interpret carefully any negative statement from emails, text messages, or tweets.

4.  I pledge not to rely on second-hand information for big decisions.

5.  I accept that I may never know the reasons behind others’ behaviors.

6.  I accept that my memory is probably not as good as I think.


*Reserving judgments does NOT mean never making judgments – judgments are necessary to make in many cases – “reserving” means waiting and gathering more information (if possible or realistic) before making a firm judgment…
