Communication

Posted on November 12, 2010 at 8:35 AM
Do you ever feel like you just want someone to listen to you about something you're trying to say to them?  This can be very frustrating and can leave you feeling helpless.  Some tips to help get you through this: 
 
1)  Begin by writing out what you want to say (it's important to be honest with yourself on this!).  Using "I" statements can assist with wording http://www.traumacentral.net/i-statements.htm
2) Practice saying it to the person before you actually talk to them
3) Picture what they would say back and how you would respond
4) When you're ready to present your case, you will be better prepared
 
If all else fails and you're still in a pickle- call me!  :)
