The words that left your lips yesterday, how many made a difference? How many served little or no purpose?
Choose your words carefully because words never leave the Universe.
Judging others can become entrenched into your psyche, when we judge we get an instant “high” of self-righteousness, BUT judging leaves us powerless and prevents healing. If you have not walked a mile in someone else’s shoes, you have no right to judge them and no one likes to listen to someone judging everyone all day long.
I always wonder if someone finds it so easy to talk about someone else to me, what are they saying about me? There is definitely a difference between a conversation; asking advice or discussing an issue and gossiping. You cannot have pure intentions when you gossip about someone.
3. Negativity and Complaining
Negative people drain your energy, be careful who you spend your time with. Life is too big and time is too short to get caught up in people’s negativity and complaining.
Negativity is a thief, it steals happiness.
Stop complaining, no one cares and no one is listening.
You are 100% in charge of your life, stop making excuses. There is such a thing as justification, when something doesn’t work out as planned, we justify the result & that my friend is just another form of “making excuses.” No one likes to listen to excuses, have a little more respect for yourself and stop making excuses.
The dictionary states; Exaggeration is a representation of something in an excessive manner.
Some people are so used to exaggerating everything that they cannot tell the truth without lying. Personally, I believe if one exaggerates, one is lying, the one isn’t better than the other, and that brings me to the next “communication sin.”
My Granny used to say “If you can lie, you can steal.”
In a perfect world, you would be able to believe everyone, but we are not living in a perfect world, so be careful who you listen to and what you listen to. Lying has long been a part of everyday life, whether you are a liar or entertain liars, you always have a choice.
The definition of “dogmatism” is; the expression of an opinion or belief as fact. This type of person is usually quite arrogant and can be irritating to most people, as they do not want to hear anything other than what they believe in.
I believe if you follow the “HAIL” principle, you will communicate so much better and people will actually want to listen to you and talk with you.
H – HONESTY
A – AUTHENTIC (standing in your own truth)
I – INTEGRITY
L – LOVE
I always say: “You cannot go wrong with honest communication but make sure it comes from a place of love and respect.”
