Lots of the problems that we face in our personal relationships are related to how we talk and how we listen to the other people. Some people suffer because they don’t feel well-listened, or because they don’t know how to express their feelings or thoughts. For that reason, effective communication is so important.
On the one hand, if you want the other person to feel listened, you should take all the time the other person needs. As well, it’s very important to keep the eye contact, because it’s a sign that means you’re really interested about what the other person is telling you. Other gestures and expressions are also important, like onomatopeias, head movements, make some questions,….
On the other hand, if you’re the person who is talking, it’s good to say your ideas clearly and with security. It’s also good to keep the eye contact and make some movements with your hands, just to help to express better yourself. And overcoat, make sure that the other person is understanding what you’re telling to her/him.
In conclusion, communication between people is really difficult, for that reason everybody has to work and practise how to talk and how to listen other people. Only in this way we would enjoy nice relationships, in which we’ll feel listened and we’ll get with the other person the confidence we want.
