Learning to Communicate...


Work to avoid judgmental attitudes like "How stupid!"  Oh, no, that would never work" or "You'll never understand!"  If you criticize your mate in a condescending manner, you're actually pushing him or her further away from you.  No one enjoys being with a disrespectful person (Proverbs 21:19).
