People are in control of their relationships; therapy is there to guide and assist during times of difficulty.
Do you find yourself wondering, does he/she really understand me? Why do they always seem to be mad or defensive when I share my thoughts and opinions. One of the biggest communication problem is we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply.
Next time you are having a conversation with someone:
People can get easily frustrated when they feel misunderstood. They will repeat themselves over and over again until they feel understood. Stop the cycle and reflect on the way you communicate.
I believe we crave human connect, especially in the world today. I think the best way to have that need fulfilled is to connect on the emotional level. After all, isn't that really what we want? Someone to say, "ah you belong, I see you!" Think about how you communicate to those important in your life. Please tell me different ways you communicate.
