One of the most important aspects in every relationship is the type of communication the people in a certain relationship have and an effective line of communication always boils down to different factors including the word used in communicating.
Without the right choice of word used in communicating, all other aspects will be nothing and this may lead to the collapse of a relationship and may put an end to long-running relationships.
Aside from the right choice of word used in communication, there are other aspects that people in a relationship must look into including the manner the message is expressed, the tone, and body gestures, among others.
A better communication
These aspects are equally important to be considered while building a better communication relationship with other people. These aspects are not only important in building effective and healthy relationship with other people in a relationship.
These things are also important in building long-lasting and healthy relationships with other people and creating a symbiotic relationship with peers.
More often than not, majority of today’s conflicts are rooted in a poor communication and this problem is extremely avoidable if people will just spend time to discuss differences and be emphatic. But admittedly, it is easier said than done.
However, there’s no harm in trying and trying your hard to create a working and healthy relationship among our peers won’t make you less of a person.
Having said that, it would be worthy of discussing the things that hinder people in building a healthy relationship and a symbiotic life with each other in today’s life.
Following are important points that one must consider whole-heartedly in order to have a healthy relationship with peers that are applicable to all people regardless of race, gender, sexual preferences, religious beliefs, and political affiliations:
Among all things that are needed to have a functional relationship be it a romantic and or professional relationship is the need to be an active listener. Of course it’s just so easy to physically listen but putting yourself and heart in the same relationship is another story. For a communication to work, there are two channels that need to be opened. With only one of the channels open, there will be no consensus and understanding between the messenger and the receiver. In order to become an active listener, one must devote and voluntarily focus his or her attention to the person talking. Some said this is the reason why people have two ears but only one mouth—we need to listen twice as we need to speak.
Recognizing your environment
These days, many people tend to forget this one. Another important quality of a person regardless of the situation is his sensitivity. One must consider not only the person talking but the environment as well. Being sensitive to the environment means that the physical conditions must be considered while communicating and while in dealing in a relationship.
Being open to your partner for that matter is another way to harness a relationship. But for those who are just starting a young relationship, it is best to help your partner overcome their inhibitions and be more open in expressing their sentiments. For professional relationship, it is a very important aspect that must be consider by companies since this will significantly affect the productivity of their company. If the employees of a certain company have a lot of inhibitions rather than being open, it would be very difficult to encourage ideas and concepts. Being open to another person is an innate defense mechanism of human beings in order to protect himself from possible unknown fears and apprehensions. Thus, once a company or a person in a relationship was able to break this barrier; this will really benefit the whole relationship. The word used in encouraging openness must not be demanding but encouraging.
Encourage mutual understanding
More often than not, majority of people are demanding their partner to understand them. But they failed to they also need to understand other people as well. If a certain relationship has a one-way level of understanding attaining symbiotic relationship is close to impossible.
Enhance the relationship’s other aspect
Just like people can’t leave in bread alone, relationship also can’t survive in communication alone. It has to be nurtured at all level considering other important factors that will harness and empower the relationship.
