Spend some time journaling about the five most important people in your life. Write down one example of a recent communication with each person. For example, journal about the last time you had dinner with a friend. Once you have written out the entire memory, look back on it and ask yourself if you feel positive about the conversation? Were you actively listening when the other person was speaking? If not, what prevented you from doing so? When you were speaking did you feel you could say anything that was on your mind or were holding things back? If so, why? Close your journal and return to it in a day. Imagine the same scenario but this time incorporate the ways you would change your communication to make it more effective.
