Communication is key in most context. You should always say what you mean and mean what you say.
Sometimes I find that what really is going on is what you are not saying that really matters. You must read through the lines so to speak to really hear what is going on.
Others are very understanding, more understanding than what you really think that they are. The best thing that you can do is always communicate. People are never going to react the way that you are thinking that you are going to communicate. Always have conversations with people, let you be surprised. Comprise and renegotiation are always something that you will want to be doing as the last thing you want is for someone to walk out of your life due to your failure to communicate.
Don’t ever worry that you will come off stupid as you will not, it always is better to ask something six or seven plus times then to get it wrong. You want to be sure that it will be going on the right way.
I find that there is lots of situations where you didn’t communicate or did not communicate effectively what is going on which can lead to drama, and other unseemly situations. You do not want to misconstrue what is really going on.
Sometimes when you don’t communicate what you really want, what isn’t being said can be misconstrued as speculation which can turn into a rumor which can then become fact when it really isn’t that.
I also think that self talk, what you tell yourself really matters. If you are thinking down on yourself, you could end up feeling sadder about yourself just due to what you are telling yourself. you always want to be telling yourself positive things, positive self talks to be able to really see the worth that you are worth.
Language or the words that you use is really something that you need to focus on as well.
I heard from somewhere that swearing didn’t really add to any conversation it takes away and I would tend to agree.
I think that a lot of people who are not religious say ‘oh my god’ or ‘Jesus Christ’ but I do not understand why as they are not religious so why are they using words that are meaningless to them but trying to give them power by saying them.
Try to take 5 words out of your vocabulary and replace them with 5 new ones and see what happens. I have done this and noticed that it was more of a thing that I couldn’t use the words that I took out.
Communication makes things happen it really does.
