Learn To Listen - Three Ways It Benefits RelationshipsWritten by Cori Sachais Swidorsky
We always hear about communication being key in a relationship. If we are always talking and not listening, then communication becomes meaningless. Itís not easy to hear what someone else is saying, especially when our feelings, thoughts and opinions are different. Here are three reasons why learning to listen benefits our relationships. 1.Shows Respect Ė When having a discussion, listening to other person shows that you respect what they are saying. Even if we disagree with whatís being said, we still need to respect their thoughts and feelings. 2.Helps Us To Understand Ė Itís difficult to understand what someone is trying to tell us if we arenít listening. Listening helps to understand why someone is feeling a certain way. Once we understand, we can move forward with situation and take steps needed.
Learn From Your MistakesWritten by Cori Sachais Swidorsky
As we go through life, we are faced with many obstacles, and sometimes we make wrong decision, assumption, and sometimes we just simply make mistakes. We are all human, we all make mistakes and in reality we all can learn from them.
After making a mistake, its normal to feel bad about what we did. We wonder how or why we made that mistake, regretting it, and sometimes we may even dwell on it to point of feeling depressed. Of course its ok to feel bad about it, but donít feel bad for too long because life does go on.
Through years I have learned to look at my mistakes and turn them into a lesson for myself, a positive lesson. No matter what situation is, I learn and grow from it, and if ever put in same situation again, outcome is a more positive one.
