Have you had a moment where things aren’t going your way?
The feeling when you can’t get your communication and relationship working together may prove to be a challenge sometimes.
But hey, we’ve all experienced that. We’ve all had our doubts in relationships and made mistakes in the past. Don’t let failures hold you back though!
It’s time you move forward, keep your confidence high, and find ways to recapture your communication and relationship goals.
To help you get your rhythm back, here are some tips to strengthen your relationship and open clear communication.
Find Your Mantra
A mantra is a statement that serves as our advocacy, motivation, or guide. It helps us overpower negative self-talk like ‘I’m no good at it, or ‘I’m too shy to do it.’
Your mantra should have a powerful effect on you and inspire you:
‘I’m becoming the best version of myself.’
‘Everything happens right on schedule.’
‘Forget the troubles, remember the blessings, and don’t stop!’
Having a catchword or slogan can be a great strategy to instill belief and communicate well with your family, friends, or co-workers.
When difficulties strike you, it’s important to have your values firmly grounded and know that things will work out in the end. A solution will always present itself, no matter how big the problem is.
When you look at the water flowing the stream, does it affect the flow? No, right? It just shows you that no matter what the challenges are, you can overcome them.
Challenge yourself. Revive your relationship with the people that you care about the most. Take responsibility that matters in your life.
However, the feeling of too much comfortability can somehow hold you back, and here are three reasons why:
- No risk, no reward
If you’re not open to trying something new, you won’t succeed. You’ll just remain stuck at where you currently are. Always remember that rewards come to those who take risks, fall, stand up, and move forward.
- Becoming complacent
Staying in your comfort zone for too long can make you complacent. You tend to be afraid of exploring other beautiful things life has to offer. In short, you won’t make progress by just keeping still. Maybe it’s time to open the lid of the box and see what other opportunities await for you.
- Not learning new skills
It’s not bad to sharpen the skills you already have, but you may be neglecting the change to develop new ones. Work on new skills and spend some time improving on things you think you need to work on. You may find happiness and personal development in your newfound skills.
There are all kinds of challenges and difficulties in life. And you must be ready to face them. Your behavior and communication should remain open to other’s advice and seek professional coaching help when you need to.
Express Yourself Clearly
Because sometimes there are things you cannot avoid from happening, the only way to resolve them is to face them. If you don’t know where you want to be in life, create a vision for where you want to be in the next 5 or 10 years. It can be daunting at first, so devise a plan on how you can achieve your goals. You can:
- Write a journal
- Read inspiring books
- Enroll in a meditation group
- Work with a life coach
- Attend positive discussions
Don’t let minor things affect your relationship with others. Whether small or big problems, it’s best to talk about them with a friend, a family member, or even a coach.
Consider having a positive life outlook and find inspiration that will give you greater motivation. This would allow you to get your groove back on track.
You can go for a hike to have a self-time. Sometimes a person needs fresh air and completely different scenery. A change that will help you realize and evaluate your relationship goals and future tracks. This could also help you discover a new interest that you have never done before but are now ready to do it freely. It can relinquish your old passion and help get your ‘mojo’ back to have a clearer mind and decision-making skills.
Think of what you can also give to others positively. What experiences, strengths, or skills you can share with others and what you can provide to the relationship.
‘Communication to a relationship is like oxygen to life; without it, it dies.’ – Tony Gaskins.
Seek Good Relationships
The world is in a scary haze right now, and it’s a guarantee that you’ll end up making some good and some bad choices in your relationships.
When you meet people, they tend to influence you. They give you sincere advice or enthusiasm or times, not-so-good. This is why you need to have good people around you that will influence you to become better.
Be around people who treat you nicely and lift you up whenever you are feeling down. It’s helpful to have relationships with other people who also have a healthy and positive approach to life.
This will help you learn how to accept more of yourself and be with friends and family. Learn good qualities from them, support, encourage advice and let yourself grow.
