If everyone communicated better, the world would be a much more peaceful place.

Most times, arguments and fights are the cause of miscommunication or non-communication. If the two sides are able to communicate effectively, no conflict arises. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be communication through talking either. Sometimes, it might be better to use visuals, smells, or even taste or touch. You don’t just have one sense, you have five. Use them.

Before you start yelling at someone, try to picture what it’d be like in their shoes.

Before you give the cold shoulder and silent treatment, think about what the other person is feeling.

Taking on an empathetic mindset with regards to communication can lead to better understanding. Think about how there might be a communication gap. And if there is, solve it… with communication.
