Communication problems are an issue for almost every human being. Few people are master communicators. We often misunderstand others, and, to make matters worse, may think we understand them when we do not. Arguments and even chronic relationship problems are often times the result. We fail to be heard and we fail to listen. We yell when we have promised not to or we find ourselves unable to speak at all, paralyzed with anger, sadness, fear, guilt, anxiety, confusion and other emotions. Discussions become fights. Disagreements become insults. Small pet peeves turn into intense emotional battles. In our close relationships, love can be poisoned, and patterns seem unsolvable.
But there’s hope.
