Use your words, we stress to communicate yet barely communicate because we don’t want to make people feel momentarily uncomfortable.
What makes us afraid to simply “talk” ? Are we afraid that we’ll be looked at crazy? Or maybe the thoughts are selfish and that’s frowned upon.
If we were to communicate better we would gravitate towards people that are more understanding regarding wherever our minds are at. That would eliminate the burden of having someone nonchalantly disagree with you simply because they don’t understand where you’re coming from. People can easily assume your wrong because of a misunderstanding or assumptions and that’s why it’s easier to not communicate in general. It’s difficult to “speak your peace” because you’ll like the presence of someone to the point you don’t want them to go so you don’t elaborate on how you feel since you don’t want them to necessarily leave. Respect the fact that words can be physiological wounds in some instances, momentarily, and if a person desires to leave accept it.
Communication isn’t only necessary in the relationships but in day to day life, when you’re dealing with the world it’s important you keep a structured way of thinking. Remember everyone is free to be opinionated you should learn how to discuss your thoughts in a non-aggressive way so it’s no hard feelings just mutual understandings.
