Not The Most Appropriate Song, But The Correct Title 🙂
Communication is very much the key to so many things.
Times have very much changed, which I think hinders us communicating.
People spend so much time in front of computers and a part of this is Social Media. Mobile Phones are another reason for this. Text messaging really frustrates me. I only text a few loved ones. I will at some stage update my mobile phone, but it currently only costs me about $10 a month.
I think it’s essential to still have a home phone. For starters, it can be free. It is a good way for children to start using a phone as well. Our son has started to make a few calls to family. You hear stories of young children with their own mobile phones ….12 years old. Is that really necessary ? Each to their own I suppose.
Many people seem addicted to their mobile. I recently saw a YouTube video titled “Keep It In Your Pants”. How long could you keep your mobile in your pants ? So many people seem unable to sit without their mobiles in their hands. My wife could be put in this category.
She says its a way she relaxes. Hmmm ?
So ,Technology aside…..
People need to talk. It’s good to ask questions and listen to the answers. There is nothing worse for a relationship than silence. Some people, when upset/ stressed out, go into silent mode. That’s understandable for a certain amount of time. Sometimes we all need time to ourselves. But that isn’t always going to solve the problem.
Talking is the key. Another thing to remember is you don’t always have to be right. There will be times when you were at fault or wrong.
It’s good to talk about your day. Ask your loved ones how their day was. I always use the phrases “What do ya know ” or “What did you learn today”. If someone is special to you, you should be interested in their day. You asking about it will be special to them as well.
So, communication is the key. Yes, technology is fantastic in the way it assists us. But, there are places and times it should be put aside.
TALK ABOUT IT !!!!
“Assumptions are the termites of relationships.”
“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
“Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid.”
“So the whole war is because we can’t talk to each other.”
