									Positive Communication
Who likes to argue? Who wants to be talked about unkindly? Who wants to be brought down all the
time? What about talking about someone behind their back?

No matters the level or content - all of these are verbal abuse. As a woman, none of this is
expected to come to you. Unfortunately, contrary to popular belief, women are often very good at
some or all of these things.

Negative communication is high with women, it’s often called Gossip! Sadly, I wouldn’t be surprised
if gossiping and spreading rumors was invented by women. It gives women a bad name and as a
woman you should be willing to do anything in your power to change this and you can.

Leading by example is very important here – just don’t do it! Your example will help a lot of women
change the way they communicate with others and help reclaim the name of women around the
world. You don’t want to known as a gossiper (under your control), just as you don’t want to be the
one gossiped about (not under your control).

Learn the skill of positive communication. Have great conversations with people where everyone
leaves happy they have participated. It may seem hard at first, if you are used to the ‘he said she
said’ scenario but this can change, if you are willing to be the one to try.

To have great communication with someone, you have to always be clear and positive with each
other. There should be straight-forward conversations filled with nothing but honesty and respect.
Be clear about what you are trying to say to a person. Keep the conversation friendly and never
speak down to the other person.

Conversations should never be negative. If for some reason out of your control, they start off
negative you should always end on a positive note. If you are to discuss a problem you may have
with someone, all you have to do is discuss the problem with no emotion and ensure you sandwich
it in between positive statements.

Again conversations should never end on a bad note. Hanging up on each other or any form of
abuse without reconciliation has been known to ruin friendships. Always remember what you say is
a reflection of you.

Also, be open minded, it can make awkward conversations run smoothly. You should never judge
another person based on something they’ve said because everyone has their own thoughts and
opinions about different situations. Being a woman is not always an easy job and it is up to us
women to set an example, not only other women but for men and children also.

Positive communication makes it easier for couples to talk and helps keep secrets from being
created. You want your partner to feel as though they can talk to you about anything. If you argue
and complain about everything, your partner won’t want to communicate with you as much and
communication is key to any relationship. This also going for children – be open minded, listen to
what they say and don’t judge.

Take this lesson in positive communication and start to apply it to your life. You will notice that
arguments seem to become a thing of the past, lies don’t exist and people will enjoy talking to you
more and more.

Positivity can only bring more positivity.
