Communication Advice: Sometimes It Is Best To Just, Shut Up

Communication Advice - Sometimes It Is Best To Just Shut Up

I am someone who has no problem with speaking my mind.  And although I have often told one person or another, my exact thoughts, my words have not always been received well.

In the past, I have been extremely blunt and harsh when it came to communicating with certain people. Not out of being a “mean girl,” but because I am just an extremely passionate person.

I only want good things for those who I care the most about. And if I feel that they are on a path, not in their best interest, for example, then I will let them know about it.

But after expressing my feelings to someone who is a part of my circle, over a year ago, the person ended up not speaking to me for a month. It was then that I learned, just because you are capable of speaking your mind, doesn’t mean you always should.

And if you do decide to tell someone how you feel, effective communication skills are found in one’s delivery and tone. It makes all the difference when conversing to others.
