The art of communication

I chose this picture because to me it represents the confusion that miscommunication can bring about in any situation.
It looks almost like the white noise that you get from a badly tuned in television set, if we see our conversations as being unclear then how can we expect others to understand what we are trying to say or communicate.

Communication comes in many ways and includes the use of body language, gestures, listening skills and observation of the inflection of the voice. Some people say that we can communicate through the mind however I myself am not really sure. One thing that I am sure of though is that if you don’t ask the question you won’t get an answer and this can be even more confusing to everyone.

How true this is.

Most of you know that Kath and I are now separated although we are still friends and see each other a few times a week, anyway this is where communicating really is important, yesterday Kath was doing a job that involves me indirectly and after she had finished we were sat in my office when I said are you ready to go. I had been in the office yesterday and it had been a really long and stressful day so I just wanted to get away. Kath then thought that I was in a rush and we parted company after saying the briefest of goodbyes, we were talking a bit later and she asked what I had for dinner and I replied nothing, I genuinely wasn’t hungry and it was too warm to eat anything heavy. Kath then said that she thought when we left my office that we could have a Fish and chips dinner together, I would have enjoyed that but because she didn’t suggest it I just came home.

I chose the above picture because I believe that it captures a view of a chasm that arises when we don’t communicate properly. In all of our communications make them effective and meaningful and don’t leave anything open to misinterpretation. Stay safe and well my dear friends ๐ŸŒนโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™

I am a 56 years old male living for the last 5 years in Pembrokeshire West Wales in the UK. I have entitled this blog along with my Facebook page as A Life worth giving because when I was growing up I was taught that the only way to get on in life was to be selfish, not even sharing sweets, books, pens or anything. I moved into adulthood with very much the same view of life and entered in my teens a life of alcohol dependency, another very selfish trait, my drinking consumed every waking moment and I saw alcohol as both my best friend and worst enemy, the only real positive was that it never let me down. Life changed for me in 1997 in the month of April when I stopped drinking and started to awaken my feelings, I found that I actually enjoyed life, enjoyed feeling although it was hard and left me feeling vulnerable yet today I am at my happiest, in a very loving relationship and life is good. A life worth giving is about my journey through life but also about being selfless and serving others willingly and with an attitude of gratitude.

  1. Communication is SO important! You are right!
    If we don’t say what we are thinking or feeling, and what our intentions are, it can lead to so many unnecessary and uncomfortable situations ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    None of us are mind readers… we don’t know if no one tells us ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Great post, my friend. Sending love and hugs xx

  2. Hello, my friend…
    Just checking in to ask if you are okay?
    We’ve had such strange weather the last few days – change of season though. The wind is currently howling outside, sigh!
    Thinking of you, and hoping that all is well โค
