Relationship Life Skill: Internal Communication
The fastest way to lose a good relationship is not to communicate. Communication is a major part of that foundation of a relationship, whether it is with other people or us. We all have learned that if our relationship with self deteriorates then so does our relationship with others. If we cannot talk to ourselves then who can we talk to?
So to have healthier relationships, one needs to improve their communication tools.
The first place to start is to improve your relationship communication skills. It starts with striking up a dialogue with self. This dialogue is termed internal communication. It is a way to explore and explain your relationship with you. The place to practice new communication skills is with yourself until you become comfortable. Accomplish this by committing to spend 10 minutes each day, first thing in the morning, communicating with you. The more you practice communicating, the more skillful you become and the better your performance. This one skill will enrich all your relationships.
