Effective communication

Key to good, positive relationships is effective communication 🙏.
Effective communication is always about understanding the other person, not about winning an argument or forcing your opinions on others 😉. To improve your assertiveness: value yourself and your options. They are as important as anyone else’s. Know your needs and wants.
Don’t say what you don’t want, say what you prefer.
Don’t say what you don’t like, say what you like.
Don’t say what you haven’t managed to do, say what are the options.
Examples of effective communication:
➡️ Instead of saying „I don’t like it when you…” say: „I feel better when you…

➡️ Instead of saying „it’s not how you do it!” say: „Have you tried this way?”

➡️ Instead of saying „I don’t want to…” say: „I’d like it more if…”

Do you see the difference?
