Communication Skills, Effective Communication
Effective communication and conflict resolution in relationships is the natural outgrowth of being in the intent to learn about loving ourselves and others. No matter how skillful we think we are in effective communication, when our intent is to control rather than learn, we will find ourselves locked into conflict and power struggles.
Is your primary motivation in your life to evolve in your ability to love yourself and others, or is it to have control over getting love and avoiding pain? The former leads to a full and satisfying life, and the latter leads to emptiness. We all have the free will to choose, moment-by-moment, what is most important to us.
