The Importance Of Clear Communication

January 20, 2018

 "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."
- Isaac Newton

Sometimes we take lightly to the fact that every choice we make directly effects our life. When we know the right thing to do, and chose to ignore it, there is a consequence, and the same thing is true for the opposite. We all know that in life there is no reset or erase button, so we need to start thinking more critically before making decisions.

"Never make permanent decisions on temporary feelings."

This is something that a lot of us struggle with. We think we can spew out whatever garbage wants to flow out of our mouth, behave however we feel, hurt people with our words or actions, and then revoke the damage by apologizing.

Life doesn't work this way and it's never okay. I know it's challenging to control yourself when emotions are high and you're feeling stressed out, or like your at you're breaking point, but operating like this only diminishes your credibility and reputation and makes you look immature and incompetent. 

"Instead of acting a fool, try communicating."
- Tee Forever

Instead of blowing up, try talking to the person and expressing what made you upset, frustrated, or hurt. This my love, is a sign of strong character and prudence. When you're under pressure and you must make a decision, consider all of your options, then decide the best way to move forward. This might take some time but, you don't have to respond to every situation or demand right away.

I had a gym teacher in grade 8 who told me, "in life, there will be times when you have to do what you don't want to do to get to the point where you can do what you want to do". As a 14-year-old kid this went over my head. Now, after chewing on this for several years I've gleaned wisdom from this simple piece of advice. If you don't discipline yourself, life will discipline you. Think about that.

"If you're not willing to change, don't expect your life to either."

Our current relationships are a result of things we did or didn't do. Our current quality of life is a result of things we did or didn't do. Every day we make choices that affect us and those who are closely connected to us. In 2018, let's stop being selfish and let's make better choices. Let's weigh the pros and cons of our behavior before responding to a conflict. Let's take some time to think before making life changing decisions. And let's commit in our mind to do things that not only benefit us, but everyone that is influenced by us.

Until next time! Xoxo

  1. Yes! I’m so here for this. I was an interpersonal communication major, and so many issues would be solved with effective communication skills. People actually listened to the other person for meaning instead of trying to build an effective argument.

    1. Girl! It's so true. We don't know how to listen and understand each other so situations get blown out of proportion. Hit me up! I'd love to hear more about your studies.
