Miscommunication is one of the most frustrating feelings one can experience with another human being; we want so badly to express ourselves and be heard that the alternative can be excruciating! Too often, we blame others for this lack of connection.
But what if we could adjust our communication skills by tweaking just one element? Not saying it’s easy, by any means, but, as in many situations, love is the answer. Now, we’re not talking rainbows and butterflies, we’re talking about conscious, pointed, intentional love. Speak with it. Hear with it.
By incorporating that one element into all our interactions with others, we can begin to transform how we enter, and leave, conversations. All of us want to be heard (it’s a basic human need), but so often we feel we are not.
Please enjoy this episode as we share our experiences with miscommunication and tips on how to enrich each relationship with the gift of love and validation.
