Do you believe you know how? Do you desire to? Do you SAY WHAT YOU MEAN and MEAN WHAT YOU SAY?

Or do you simply make small talk. Focus on the trivial. Have generic conversations. Maybe partake in SOCIAL MASSAGING…Y’know, “Hello. How are you? What do you do? Where do you live? Are you married? Does he have a brother or a sister etc…etc…SEE YER!”

Many of us express what we THINK rather than what we FEEL…and maybe, just maybe, not say anything at all. QUIET FEELS RIGHT, but remember SILENCE IS APPROVAL. Well quiet is far from right as far as I am concerned – and those who know me would definitely agree. However, do not confuse being quiet with listening. A good communicator LISTENS!

Much of the time we are sending MIXED SIGNALS by saying one thing but really meaning something entirely different. It feels safer, non-threatening, and therefore, we may just be liked, accepted, envied or even loved. (not that again.!)

SELECTIVE INFORMATION is not COMMUNICATION. I am not suggesting that you are able to practice this all of the time in all circumstances/relationships, but certainly you could do this regarding the most important and personal ones, especially if you desire them to flourish and be successful.

COMMUNICATION IS TALKING TO EACH OTHER.. NOT AT EACH OTHER. You can COMMUNICATE without angering, disappointing or hurting most people as long as you are coming from good intentions and honesty, choosing your words accordingly and not needing to be right. I have learned that I WOULD RATHER BE HAPPY THAN RIGHT!

How about YOU?

SO THERE!

Love and Blessings,
