Balanced Thinking

As I stated in my last post, trust is the foundation but communication is the key to success in any relationship. Emotions also play a part of this dance. Without proper communication emotions can overtake us. When that happens poor decisions are often made. (Remember the rule for not making decisions while in an emotional state?) How do we avoid falling into this trap? Here is my suggestion, when there is room for a misunderstanding take the time to repeat what you thought you heard and simply ask if you understood correctly. While on the surface, this seems simple enough, it takes practice to be proficient in this skill set.

Because misunderstood communications can result in mistrust and/or hurt feelings. The next thing we should look at is a balance thought process. By that I mean, once again, avoid making any major decisions while in an emotional state. Good decisions require a rationale that may not be existent while in an emotional state. Of coarse different personality types handle the stress of emotions differently than others, but still it always good to make major decisions especially of the financial or relational kind only while in a calm state of mind.

Whenever you find yourself in a situation caused by unbalanced decision or because of lack of communication, simply keep in mind this is not a time for blame placing but instead communication is essential. Keep in mind it is the issue of communication that is being addressed not the person. It is the thing that is causing the problem. Stay focused and address the situation. Hopefully this will help keep issues down on the home front as well as in any relationships you are in.

Take care, you affect those around you J
