Ways To Boost Communication (<2yrs)


Ways to boost communication…

Another old writing of mine.  Short and sweet, but it’s neat to look back on things.

It is a very, very, very common issue, not being very effective with communication of feelings.

Basically sometimes it just takes baby steps into getting more comfortable first with knowing your feelings, accepting that they are there and what they are at any given time, and being able to communicate those things to yourself first and foremost.

(Private journal)

Then moving to being able to communicate those things to those around you. Which can be as simple as merely stating out loud the simple things to start, like if you’re happy, say you’re happy. Let it be a “heard” thing.

If there are things you need to communicate that are on the more serious side, being able to get them all down in a coherent mass first usually helps a lot of people. It’s a place where you can privately get it all out, read it over, and adjust where you feel it needs to be adjusted for clarity. Then handing it over for someone else to read and consider over a period of time, and to respond to properly, without the instant emotions that come with discussing actively and on the spot.

As the little steps become easier, move on to the harder things, and go back to the beginning if necessary, rinse and repeat.
