Get your point across without crying or screaming
Ever feel like no one understands you? Perhaps you’re not expressing yourself clearly. You might feel like you need to yell to be heard or find yourself crying, but you will get your point across more effectively and with more impact if you are calm.
How to communicate effectively
- Everyone gets angry, but wait until you are calm and know what you want to say before blurting out the first thing that pops into your head.
- If you find your voice rising to a level that only neighbourhood dogs can hear, then take a deep breath, and calm yourself down before proceeding.
- Don’t resort to insults or belittling the person you are talking to.
- Know when to walk away.
