Relationships and communication

One of the few very important things to learn early on is communication. If you sit down and think why would communication be important to you’r daily life? The answer is that you communicate with individuals on a daily basis, hopefully. Growing into adulthood people go to school and socialize on a daily basis for majority of children. This is time to tune in to social norms and understand other individuals. To have successful relationships you would need to understand other individuals and most importantly yourself.

In the modern age where we are the constant go we forget to fulfill are basic needs. This within it self is very damaging if you cohabit with a partner. According to American Psychological Association divorce rates have risen “Marriage and divorce are both common experiences. In Western cultures, more than 90 percent of people marry by age 50. Healthy marriages are good for couples’ mental and physical health. They are also good for children; growing up in a happy home protects children from mental, physical, educational and social problems. However, about 40 to 50 percent of married couples in the United States divorce. The divorce rate for subsequent marriages is even higher.” Am concluding that many factors contribute to divorce rates , but within couples you need to communicate.

As humans we tend to be reactive to situations instead of being responsive to the situation. Reacting you just respond very quickly while being responsive you think before you speak. Imagine if you are arguing and instead of just sending the individual to hell you think about why they are angry in the first place. Two things happen there

1. you stepped out of the situation and are thinking why the individual is angry or upset

2. Instead of reacting and making the situation more serious and more damaging you are able to relax before responding.

Remember at times we think we are correct, but it does not hurt to see another person perspective.
