When individual members are able to communicate with family members in an effective way, they start to see that it is not about who is right or wrong. Each will understand that seeing different viewpoints on topics is healthy and necessary. Not everyone will agree, but each can strive to allow the other members to express their view point and see where they are each coming from. This is about validation, authenticity, releasing expectations of who each member wants the other to say, act and feel. Family communication Orlando is about learning to build bridges.
Most if not all miscommunication arises from unmet expectations of others and assumptions. Family members assume to know what the other is thinking and feeling so they avoid the importance of talking and asking questions. Designating a place in the home that is a “fight free zone” is one way the family can create space to allow all to come together and not feel judged or shut down when they share their voice. This will help to open up the lines of communication between all members.
Family often times get caught up in talking about each other behind closed doors or when the other is not around. Words get taken out of context and misconstrued. When we don’t go directly to the individual in the family that is involved, the lines get blurred and facts are no longer facts. Learn to speak with intent and truth. Be aware enough to know that we often change what is really being said to fit what we want to hear. Ask for clarification from each member so you all are clear on what is really the spoken truth of each family member.
Families are there through the trials and the triumphs. When the family is communicates well, all of the members feel loved and supported. They feel part of a team working together for the best interest of the whole. Coming together for each other and supporting each other with unconditional love is the greatest form of love and expression there is.
