Relationships

Say what you mean and Mean what you say.

Give the people in your life the information they need, rather than expecting them to know the unknowable. Information is the grease that keeps the engine of communication functioning. Start communicating clearly. Don’t try to read other people’s minds, and don’t make other people try to read yours. Most problems, big and small, within a family, friendship, or business relationship, start with bad communications.

Leave petty arguments alone.

Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right. There are many roads to what’s right. And most of the time it just doesn’t matter that much.

Give what you want to receive.

Don’t expect what you are not willing to give. Start practicing golden rule. If you want respect, then learn to earn respect. If you want friends, be friendly. If you want trust, then be trustworthy. If you want help, then learn to communicate effectively and ask for help. One-way relationships is similar to lying, cheating and screwing with people’s feelings and emotions and taking advantage of the situation. You can never hold lofty, noble thoughts, without benefiting both yourself and others.
