The struggle is real. We need to be understood. We need to speak our minds and stand up for ourselves. Yet, the more urgent the message, the more difficult it is to express. And the less people understand it.
We must overcome this lack of communication and understanding if we are to live our best life. Being able to connect with and relate to others is a biological drive, and a fundamental aspect of wellness.
There is a core obstacle to achieving this human connection, and that is that we are not born knowing how to do it. We learn how, mostly by observing adults when we are children. Most of these adults also struggled to communicate.
Maybe you have experienced one or more of these problems:
- You love your spouse or partner, but your conversations seem to go nowhere.
- Your efforts to express your point of view at work are frustrated.
- You have issues with your boss, but you suffer in silence.
None of these problems is your fault. The communication skills you learned in childhood are not adequate to the adult world.
You can learn a new way to speak and listen, one that will help others to hear and understand you. A powerful technique that relieves the terror and stress of communicating with difficult people and authority figures. A way of connecting and relating that will improve even your closest relationships.
I will coach you in this way of speaking and listening, individually, as a couple, or as a family. Simply contact me at Dave@betterthanbe4.com, or through the contact page on this blog, to set up a free appointment to discuss your needs.
Think how wonderful it would feel to speak and be heard, to listen and understand.
