The problem with communication today…
The more self-aware I become about my own communication, the more aware I become of how much work there is to be done.
The work is never done.
I truly believe that the one factor that changes communication is true empathy; being able to see what they see and feel what they feel.
Most people don’t have the ability to communicate effectively because they are too preoccupied with protecting their own ego.
The result is emotional unavailability and in turn zero chance of a meaningful conversation and connection taking place.
Unfortunately, most people are going through their life not only blind to this, but blame others for the problems that happen because of poor communication.
If we want more meaningful relationships and conversations, it’s up to each one us to improve the way we communicate; work on and improve how we listen, the words we use and the questions we ask.
The main challenge with communication: most people don’t realise that it’s them that’s the problem, and also the solution, to better #communication in all #relationships. In short – the reason we struggle is because we blame others instead of looking at being better ourselves.
