Supportive Communication - Article
Communication is THE most important aspect of Human interaction
Communication has a direct impact on War - Peace - Religion - Ideologies - Politics - Relationship, and on all and everything.
Being that important, one could be tempted to think that is would be taken more seriously and taught more effectively.
We all learn to speak, but speaking is far from communicating purposely.
Interestingly, effective communication is much more used for it's negative aspect and power, such as persuasion, bullying, arguing, inducing pain, marketing and political ideas.
Communication is in direct relationship with Attitude. That is the reason why it is so powerful, and why it can be used to change the world.
By changing the way we communicate from negative power to positive, from argumentative to supportive, we change attitudes at the same time.
One can learn supportive positive communication - which will change your attitude to supportive and positive.
One can change ones attitude to supportive, and therefore will adopt supportive communication.
Why is everything on our beautiful planet so mixed up?
Why has it so many violent destructive elements?
Why are people, countries, religion, politics, ideologies working incredible hard to give each other hell, making each other wrong?
It's mostly Communication and Attitude, obviously there are different issues as well, greed springs to mind... but lets not get into all and everything, lets concentrate on communication.
Because, a "Supportive Communication and Attitude" can be easily learnt, practice and spread out all over the world.
There is no need to make anyone wrong; .... actually there is no need make countries, parties, religion or ideologies wrong.
Quite the opposite, support them, that way, they don't have to prove themselves right.
That's what it all comes down too, everyone wants to be right .. which just doesn't work!
It should be clear by now, after centuries of struggle, there is no overall right, we all grow up differently, with different perspectives on life, which has nothing to do with right or wrong, it's just different.
By supporting that difference, by communicating supportively to that difference, instead of constantly arguing about something which never will work out to the good of all, we can live happily ever after :-)
Practice supportive communication - everywhere - politics included. ( esp politics :-)
Most of it coming from politicians, news media, social media, trying hard to prove themselves right and everyone else wrong, after all, all try to win, and politicians ... win an election.
It's not what you would call inspiring, supportive or being a role model.
Start within you partnership, support each other, it's sooo much more fun, creative and healthy.
