On communication

Everything is relative. It's "how" YOU say, do, or use it. And, It's "how" others interpret or understand it that defines the true meaning. That's the beauty & power communication! Yes. It's a science. Learn "how" to convey ideas, thoughts, & actions in a specific way that appeals to EACH different person/group. Don't immediately get offended/upset at the words/actions of others if they initially ...appear negative. Keep an non-judgemental, relaxed, open mind at first. People communicate, interpret, & project differently. We are not all the same! We speak & understand differently. What may SEEM as negative or criticism MAY NOT be. It could be misunderstanding or miscommunication. Or just reaction to a hard day. And...YOUR REACTION/REPLY defines what happens next. You incite/invite more negativity in a situation by immediately "assuming" & reacting. You can also incite/invite more positivity by carefully listening, viewing it through "their" perspective, & then choosing the right words to respond back. Don't let others affect you with words/actions. Take charge. Respectfully lead them in the direction YOU WANT using the power of an open mind & careful communication. You HAVE that choice & power! ;)
