Words from the mouth of the wise are gracious, but fools are consumed by their own lips. Ecclessiates10:12
Words can make or mar, build or destroy, encourage or bring down; it is therefore important that we learn how to relate with one another in manners that we’ll be informing rather than arousing hurtful emotions amongst ourselves. One of the key skills anyone, who desires a lasting relationship, needs to harness is the art of making Good Communication. Communication in simple terms is sending and receiving
information. This implies that communication involves the participation of two or more parties.
Communication between spouses is necessary for three major reasons: entertainment (information), education and correction. An example of an entertaining conversation is a discussion about an event that occurred in the course of the day. An educative communication can ensue in the course of a Q&A session between two parties or an argument where you get to discover the interests of your partner.
The corrective communication comes to play during conflict resolution after a heated conversation.
It is very important to communicate your hurts to your partners as this not only lightens your hearts but gives the other party room to understand your personality. (Ecc10:12). I Know that you believe understand what you think I said, but I am not sure that you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
