Healthy communication skills to use for your everyday life

Healthy communication skills

Expressing our emotions and feelings are an important part of life. However, it needs to be done in a good way, and not trying to attack the other person. There is nothing wrong with how you feel, you own your thoughts and feelings. What you do with it is another matter. Lashing out on someone isn’t the best way to grab their attention. Least not for anybody I know! I would like to teach you some healthy communication skills that I’m praying will help with how you express yourself.

Anytime you are upset with someone or a situation going on in your life, it’s best to take a 24 hour time out from the situation. No, that doesn’t mean go sit your butt in the corner, it simply means taking a break from the circumstances or that person. Be honest with them, “hey, I’m upset and I don’t want to talk to you until I’ve had a chance to clear my head.” Then you walk away. If they keep bothering you, you repeat again what you said, and you may want to add, that you don’t want to say or do anything that could make things worse. Once you start learning to stand up to yourself, over time people will respect you more.

Before stepping into a conversation or situation make sure you’re prayed up. Then start by saying something nice about the person, such as “I like your shirt,” or name something they did nicely for you in the past.  Afterward, begin to tell them how you feel, and make sure you plenty of “I” statements. Because after all, they are your feelings. The moment you said, “you made me feel this.” Instead, you could say, “you know whenever you made fun of my hair yesterday, it made me feel worthless. I worked really hard on it, and when you said that, I felt like….” The moment you start using YOU statements, people tend to shut down. Then you always want to thank the person for listening to you, regardless of the outcome.

Then there are others who need to try to problem solve. Here’s what I want you to do. Let’s say it’s an issue at work. I want you to think of possible solutions that you could try. Write them all down and bring them to the meeting. That way it looks like you’re being prepared, plus your boss and most people can’t even figure out their own problems, let alone solve yours. Then you go into the office and brainstorm together.

If you are the type of person who has no clue how to problem solve or fix the issue, you go into that meeting and you be honest. You explain what isn’t working for you and you express that you want to be better, or resolve the issue. You guys would then come up with a plan together.  If nothing gets resolved, express how you’re feeling,  and what you need personally for things to work out. Stand up for yourselves. Nobody else will if you don’t.

Always go into a meeting with confidence with your head held high. Stand tall going in, and dress professionally. Firmly shake their hand, or hug if you usually do. If you both are believers pray before you begin.

No matter what the outcome, please always remember that God is in control over every situation. He’s bigger and stronger and can change anybody’s heart. Anything is possible when the Almighty God on your side. Never give up. I also want to note that sometimes you may need to bring a witness to just hear what is being said.

Psalm 19:14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
