The ability to communicate well is one of the most crucial skills when it comes to the quality of your life.
This class of the Relationship School will look at communication from the perspective of the place in you that you are communicating from.
Your starting point for the conversation or discussion. Happy reading!
Communicating as an adult!
When we communicate with other people we can come from different parts of ourselves in the communication. In this case, we talk about three places, a parent-ego, a child-ego or an adult-ego. Which of these places, or these egos, that I use, will greatly influence the outcome of the communication.
To get closer to each other, work effectively together or to grow as people and in our relationship, we both need to speak and act from the adult-ego.This type of communication involves a reciprocal exchange of feelings, feedback and honesty.
If we speak and act from the parent-ego, we easily become overly critical or overly caring in relation to the other person.
When we speak and act from the child-ego, we tend to become rebellious inside towards the other person or easily hurt and fussy.
For a long lasting relationship filled with love and life, it is important to learn to recognize what makes me fall into using my parent-ego or child-ego, so that you can assume control in your own life and come from the adult-ego in your communication as often as possible.
