The Value of Communication


What is a relationship without communication? It’s like a house without a foundation. Communication is the foundation, the building block upon which we can build a successful and loving relationship. The bottom line is that failure to communicate is one of the main reasons why couples break up or why friendship ends. To have a chance of getting through relationship, communication is a must. If you value your relationship/friendship, you must be committed to make it work. Being able to effectively communicate is a skill and as with any skill, it requires practice, time and patience to master it. Communication plays a large role in the exchange between people. It helps exchange information in the form of ideas, wants, desires, feelings, and much more. Incomplete or stopped communication can create a block in the relationship. The degree of the block can vary with the severity or persistence of the communication stop. A relationship will be endangered when communication is avoided.
