Are you a woman in a relationship who finds that no matter how great your ideas are they are never the ones adopted? Maybe when you go out together you feel as if you are but a shadow with no one paying attention to what you have to say?
Many women feel the same, I know I did.
Many women find that while they think they are communicating effectively and clearly, the reality is the message they want to convey is not getting through. Why is this?
Communication is a complex area, while on the face of it, it is simple: I talk, you hear? the reality can be very different.
Have you ever found yourself wondering if you are talking in another language when you are trying to get your point across?
Do you every find people looking puzzled when you think you are being crystal clear?
Consider for example the situation where someone from Australia is talking to someone from England about casual footwear worn in the summer. The Australian could say "So you know I love wearing thongs, they are cool and keep my feet from sweating in the hot summer sun"
and the person from England is looking puzzled, for to them a "thong" is a piece of ladies underwear and it is a "flip flop" that keeps your feet cool in the summer.
A simple example, I agree, yet it illustrates just one way that communication can be confused.
It is a common experience for many women to feel they are talking to a brick wall, when they know the message they want to convey is a simple one. So how exactly can we ensure that what we want to say is what is being heard by our partners?
