I don’t force friendships or communication.If its not mutual, I’ll let it go. It’s that simple for me.Rob Hill Sr.
Hey loves, and Welcome back to Joi’s Journey of Perception. As you know, I’ve been getting back into reading and sharing what I took from the book. I am reading two books at one time. One of the books, I can’t really discuss until it’s completely finished. But I do have one I can discuss as I go.
The Art of Communicating
Lack of communication ruins everything because instead of knowing how the other person is feeling, we just assume.
This chapter starts off with an amazing quote: “Nothing can survive without food. Everything we consume acts either to heal us or to poison us”. And when you think about it, it is true. What we take in affects us, whether we planned it or not. The author was saying that we should think of communication in terms of nourishment and consumption. The author brings up the internet and how it can affect us. Think about social media. Unless you have an “I don’t care” outlook, it is easy to compare yourself to others.
But there is also information that you can take in from social media, that can contribute to your healing. They said the key to healthy communication is mindfulness.
mind·ful·ness/ˈmīn(d)f(ə)lnəs/Learn to pronounce noun
- 1. the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.”their mindfulness of the wider cinematic tradition”
- 2. a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.
I know that communication is one of the top things that are important to me in a relationship and friendship. Good communication is being aware of your thoughts and whether they are healthy or not. We often hear people say to protect our energy, but do you know why? Because you want to keep producing compassion for yourself and others.
Did you know?
Communication can help bring a dead relationship back to life. When you produce a negative thought about the relatioship, you are not nourturing the relationship. Alot of my old relationships and friendships could have been save if everyone was willing to communicate. Communication is a choice you know.
