Connections that Matter

November 2019

I realized recently that the better you know your values and goals, the more likely you are to have better communication in your life. I am not a very good communicator, of course. I often make mistakes. But I have a good understanding of shared fundamentals and what actions can lead to improved relationships with other human beings. This, in turn, can lead to more meaningful relationships, successful outcomes, and fewer difficult or stressful conversations.

All people and all communication situations are unique. But if you are able to accurately approach every conversation and sense what another person is feeling or thinking at any given time, then the results might be magical. The names of the two most powerful crystals, which support lasting relationships are respect and tact. They symbolize the art of communication that gives their users the possibility to build and maintain good relationships with themselves and other human beings.

Who we are is an insight we seek, but some fundamentals are common. Being able to be yourself is the first and foremost anchor in the ground of deep communication, but a keen sense of what to say or do will bring a relationship to the next level. Keep things simple. When you are responding, try to avoid bad feelings or awkwardness, while at the same time reflecting your thoughts and feelings back in a non-violent way. But remember one golden rule: anything you put out should be as long as you can hold the attention of who you’re saying it for.

Whenever you start a conversation, there is always a choice. Just let yourself speak, removing your stress and strain. We all want our needs to be perceived and respected. We all have opinions, beliefs, ideas, and feelings. But, I believe that life is not a single-player game. We are all connected. And If you connect with other human beings on the path of life, they will likely connect with you too.
