Relationships are an art form created by two individuals who have a similar or complimentary vision, passion, and ambition. Rarely has a relationship developed without its growth pains. Similar to the development of the human body; a relationship is affected by the nurturing it receives. If a relationship lacks in nutrition it will not have a healthy development. Unhealthy relationships are most commonly lacking in the most essential of ingredient: healthy communication.
What is communication? It is the ability to convey or share emotions, feelings, sentiments, and desires. Communication can be sent or received through verbal or nonverbal cues. Healthy communication is the ability to communicate without offering hateful or undesirable responses. While not all communication will be received with a welcoming spirit; healthy communication acknowledges that we have a right to “agree to disagree”.
