Why do we need to Communicate?

Let’s talk more…just like this.

The necessity of communication in relationships hasn’t been emphasized enough.

Communication lets the other person know how you feel, it informs, and most importantly is a prerequisite for a healthy relationship.

Communication, a Latin word ‘commūnicāre’, meaning “to share” is the act of conveying intended meaning  from one  or group to another through the use of mutually understood signs and semiotic rule (Google assisted definition).

Since we weren’t created with telepathic skills it’s kinda hard to know what goes on in the mind of another, other times you need to be certain if that person you like likes you back and communication avails you that opportunity, it helps solve a lot of built up problems, releases the tenses, in fact there’s nothing a ‘good talk’ can’t solve.

Now that we’ve got the definition of communication checked, I’ll like to talk more about its advantages especially in relationships, that is if that relationship isn’t just a try out. A lot of people these days carry hidden grudges that weigh them down emotionally and psychologically because they refuse to express their hurt.

I read a post on Facebook recently that said; “bearing grudges is like drinking poison and expecting the person that hurt you to die”. Have you ever wondered why a psychologist’s basic antidote(tool) is ‘talking’? or why you pay so much money to have someone sit behind a desk and asks you all sort of questions and proffer advice that’ll just light up your whole mood? That is to say communication is very vital. What you hear and say exerts control over your mood.
