It’s a fact, your communication either creates closeness, connection and expands the feelings of love, creativity and possibilities…
Or it creates walls, barriers and defenses that cause distance, separation and resentments.
Wouldn’t it be a whole lot better if the other people in your life were better at communicating?
But since we’re talking with you right now…
The big question is what can you do to improve communication and connection for yourself as well as for others?
Much more than you think!
If you’re going to be the catalyst (and somebody always has the opportunity to be the catalyst)…
There are some ways you can begin to communicate that will begin to resolve resentments inside you, as well as others.
During Week 2 of our Communication Magic 2020, we’ll take a deep dive into how to communicate with yourself and with others when resentments are creating stress in your relationships and life.
In the meantime, here are two ways that you can begin to resolve resentments and allow them to ease…
1. Know that holding onto resentment hurts YOU and not them
It’s certainly a misunderstanding that is easy to hold onto that by hanging onto anger, regret and bitterness, we are somehow making the other person “pay” for what they did to us.
Anything could be further from the truth.
The truth is that we are only hurting ourselves when we close down the vital energy that runs through all of us.
All parts of our lives suffer when we close down this creative force inside us by hanging onto to how we were wronged.
The magic is in loving ourselves enough to lay resentment down and stop trying to “punish” the other person.
That doesn’t mean we pretend everything is as it was before.
It means that we can make loving choices for ourselves when our minds aren’t clouded with anger and bitterness.
2. Look for what’s positive in your present moment
When you focus on the present moment and what you like vs. what you don’t like…
Worlds open up to you that you never knew were possible.
When Carol started focusing on being a loving mother and reviving her interest in music instead of how her husband left her for another woman…
She found more peace and happiness….
In small moments at first and then those moments grew to where she barely thought about her ex and “the other woman.”
She saw a future for her and her kids that she didn’t think was possible.
