Mindfulness gives me the power to control the use of my own speech
And the wisdom not to be adversely affected by other people's verbal abuse
By understanding it as expressions of their mental suffering.
When other people are unable to use their speech skillfully,
May I develop empathy to remain calm, focused and patient
So that they will be relieved of their suffering.
