Misunderstood? Left confused? Don’t feel like your point was well taken?
Every conversation is complex in nature. We have moods, influences, and circumstances they play a role in our communication. And that is just our side. The other person has a whole set of those from their side. Complications only increase with each addition person involved.
Taking an inventory first of our own helps us approach communications with a better possible outcome. Even then things can go sideways. What do we do then?
One of the hardest things to do is to take responsibility and reassess not only our state of mind (the results often of the above inputs) and try a different method. The other person could be at fault but is easier to make adjustment ourselves and if possible express how they may adjust as well.
It may be easier to walk through the front door but good communication often takes a climbing through the window.
