Communications is defined as the imparting or interchange of thoughts, opinions, or information by speech, writing, or signs. When there is no longer any imparting or interchanging between two individuals then there is no longer any communication. When both parties have completely shut down and shut the other out then they are no longer communicating and the relationship suffers.
Too many times we try to force communication to happen when either one person or both parties involved do not want to talk about anything with the other. They then feel forced into talking and both become resentful of each other. It becomes a losing situation for everyone involved. We fail to realize that communication isn’t something that can be forced; it has to be on a voluntary basis. It has to happen because you actually want to talk and open up to the other person.
So when communication has been shut down, when no one wants to talk… What do you do?? Do you continue to wait around in hopes that, one day, the floodgates will open back up and you can start interchanging and imparting again or do you call it quits? Or what if, when communication does occur, you aren’t prepared at all for what you are going to hear? What if the floodgate is opened and it is negative and not the positive you were hoping for??
One day at a time- this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.
THIS IS MY LIFE QUOTE & 2011 WILL BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL YEAR OF MY LIFE!!!
WOW!! I never thought I would see the day where I would create a blog but after some pushing from a friend (Cesmar) I decided that maybe it wouldn’t be such a bad idea. It is a new year and I am allowing myself to open up more and do things, feel feelings, and react differently to situations that I would have never thought possible for myself.
2010 was a HUGE and significant year for me. I lost some friends who weren’t really there for me and made room for some of the most AMAZING people that I have ever had the privilege of getting to know. Dealt with drama, partied hard, loved hard, made some bad decisions & dealt with the consequences, made some good decisions & reaped the rewards. All in all it wasn’t the worst year of my life but it definitely was the most introspective.
2011 will be MY YEAR!! I will accomplish all that I set my mind too and I will not let anyone throw me off course (including myself). I have learned that I am my own worst enemy and realizing that significant error in my life has been a huge triumph!! I will continue to love hard, party hard, study hard, and live hard!!
