Say What?

“Communication, communication, communication.”

That’s how the saying goes isn’t it…?

This week we have been focusing on communication and my world is being rocked. Being able to communicate with your spouse or significant other is so crucial in any kind of relationship, something that I am learning quickly. This is something that we hear all the time though right? Well consider this statement that I read from a scholarly textbook:

What you actually does not mean nearly as much as what the other person believes that you say.

Consider that. We may be talking to each other all day long, but if we  are not finding appropriate ways to communicate, we are only hearing what we want to hear, not what is actually being said.

If we can learn to communicate with one another, there is a whole world of things that can now be accomplished. A whole world.
