You’ve likely now been home with your partner, children, or roommates for a week, maybe two, and you’ve probably had a few interactions where you said something you didn’t mean or didn’t know how to say so you got passive aggressive or lashed out in frustration.
Let me tell you that you aren’t alone.
Right now with what’s happening in the world more people are finding it hard to communicate. To be heard. To be understood. To be connected. To express themselves. To know what they need and want.
More people are arguing, getting defensive, taking things personally, lashing out, shutting down, rolling their eyes, getting louder, lying, making excuses, shaking their heads with judgment, not listening, not talking, and getting on each others’ nerves
It’s hard to be in close quarters with people we love if we don’t know not only how to speak in a way that’s kind, honest, and helpful, but also how to be present, compassionate, non-judgmental, and concise.
The health of your conversations is critical for dealing with being in quarantine.
And while changing the way you communicated before seemed like something you could do in the future, now it seems more urgent.
To be able to enjoy those you’re with right now is extremely important to your mental, physical, and emotional health. And the beauty is that you no longer have any distractions getting in the way – you now have plenty of time.
So this is a call to all those who are ready to start becoming more responsive instead of reactive. Who are ready to start speaking clearly, consciously, concisely, and compassionately. Those ready to learn how to express themselves so they’re heard and understood.
Now’s not the time to stop communicating … now’s the time to see that your words can change your world.
