Speaking Another Language

Sometimes no matter what you say to another person, you swear that you're speaking another language. There is definitely a communication problem, but where do you begin to correct it. It seems what ever you are trying to say, the other person doesn't seem to understand. It can be frustrating when you find yourself repeating yourself.  No matter how you put it, it seems to fall on deaf ears. You're not sure if you should just step away for a moment to gather your thoughts and regroup. Nothing you're saying at this time seems to be getting across. Maybe, just maybe it's not you but the other person. What if they are not ready to hear what you have to say? What if they do hear you but need time to process the information? Stop and think of the message you're trying to get across, then give the other person time to think about what you're saying. Nothing will get accomplished when there is too much emotion swirling around. It's not understanding the message that is important. It's learning to have patience with others and realizing the importance of good relationships.

 

There are no words to describe nature's beauty...

(Sometimes I have to reflect upon what I'm going to say before speaking to people. It's only a check and balance that I'm saying what I want to convey. I know that half the people I speak to don't understand what I'm saying. It's only by asking me what I meant will they understand. Or maybe not.)
