Effective communication is a big key in maintaining healthy relationships with the people in our lives, whether it be our significant other or our bosses. If we can’t or don’t get our point across in an effective and respectful manner how are we to expect to get the results we desire to achieve? We can’t and won’t.
What makes a strong, healthy, happy relationship? Is it communication? Well … that’s a big part of it. What about respect? Yeah … that’s definitely important. Honesty? You betcha. Loyalty? Commitment? Compromise? Patience? Fun? Yes. All of those are key components in making a happy, healthy relationship, but they’re only a part of it. Please don’t think I am trying to undervalue them because I definitely am not at all. They are all huge, important factors, but they are all components that come together to make up the most important thing of all … trust.
