Communication - Bad Habits?

Recommended Posts

Turning the discussion from the topic to the person

 

I agree this is not a good habit in communication.

Turning the discussion from the topic to the person

 

 

When it gets to that point, the discussion's usually over. It's better to just walk away.

 

Perhaps this is true. But perhaps too one cannot walk away... Say from a relative. Do you simply cut that relative off? Or a spouse? Do you simply walk away and not deal with the problem?

God bless,

GE

1)Only talking about yourself.

2)bragging

3) Inappropriate jokes and or words.

 

I agree the first two seem like they would stem from pride Bo.

 

The words or jokes would come from what is in a person's heart... Is that what you mean?

God bless,

GE

Not answering questions.

 

When it comes to text based communication, it isn't being taken as literally as it should be.  There's too much implying or insinuation on the part of the readers.

 

So when you say not answering questions you mean simply wanting to have a monologue?

Good list, G.E.  I can only add the habit of twisting another's words to suit one's agenda.  That one makes me nuts!

      My husband and I have been married for almost two years. He is a wonderful Christain man. He loves giving back to the church, dedicating himself to helping family and church family, he is hard working, and so much more. When we first met I immediately knew he was different than most people and that he processes things differently. It is very difficult for him to put himself in someone else's shoes, or understand that others interpret situations differently than he does. There is no ill-will towards anyone, he just cannot empathize well and often misinterprets or misses nuances of meaning. I know this and try to adjust my interactions with him accordingly, but I feel like effective communication is always a struggle. I want to find a better way to communicate with him and to help our marriage grow. When I tell him that I want to connect more and grow our marriage he becomes offended and interprets it as me saying he is a bad husband and our relationship is terrible, which is not the case. When I try to clarify my meaning he shuts down or becomes angry. I have attempted to follow advice saying to dedicate myself to biblical wifely duties and pray that he will become more active and open to growing our marriage. However, it seems the more I dedicate myself to selflessly serving him the more he takes for granted what I do and the more he begins to expect it. If I fail or forget something, like washing his undershirts, he rebukes me as if I am a child that has misbehaved. When I try to tell him how I feel he shuts down or gets upset. So I have tried to be more subtle. I asked if we could start reading the bible together and praying before bed, but again he interpreted it as me saying our marriage is terrible. It isn't terrible, far from it, but before we have children I feel that we need to be able to work better as a team, communicate more effectively, and have a more Christ-centered relationship. Prayers and advice would be greatly appreciated.

      I've been unable to get ahold of someone who normally is always reachable. Especially at this hour. This is a strong concern because of intense pains that have been happening to them very recently.
       
      I hope I am just pushing the panic button prematurely. But in case this is an emergency, I felt I should ask for you to please pray all is okay. Also, that I will be able to get through to them via the phone or they will notify me if something serious medically is occuring. Meanwhile, I must trust God.

      Hello everyone! My username is DaveAJ, but please call me Dave. I want to put this in a way some can understand... This brings some debatable topics into this website, but I wish not to affect your faith, nor your opinions. But please, try to see this in the way that I do.
       
      A lot of people know about such claims to seeing and hearing about extraterrestrial encounters or files. Some are hoaxes, but others seem to take a more realistic approach to the entire category. I've heard that these aliens are demons and are here to bring us harm, but I've also heard they are life given to other creatures that are similar to humans.
       
      Notice:
      The usual description and analysis of these things are human-like in body parts. (i.e.: Arms, legs, head, feet, torso, bipedal, etc.) Genesis 1:27 "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." And can be seen in multiple races, such as humans. But I also understand God made angels in his image, and from angels came fallen angels - demons. And these demons wish to bring us harm. But stories seem to point toward aliens having curiosity toward humans, dissecting and probing them. Like humans did (do) to frogs, dogs, cats, etc. to learn more about their anatomy. As I see it, the procedures done unto humans leaves massive psychological and traumatic memories burned into the specimen's brain. I've also noticed the bible says the devil and demons wish to bring torture. But does it say anywhere in the bible that God only made life on earth, or does it not mention other worlds?
       
      I can share personal experiences, that make me say that I believe very much that these things are out there, but what is their intention? Good, or harm? I'd like to see what you guys think. Go ahead and comment below, telling me where you stand on the matter.
       
      Have a good day/night, and God bless you!
