Comprehension IN Communication

Communication should ideally affect both the giver's and the receiver's point of view. But if we want to be in good communication then comprehension is playing a vital role.

So, many people’s relationships were not being able to meet each other's expectations in a healthy way. Why!? We encounter communication difficulties and interpret communications in different ways. If we want to improve our comprehension skills we need to see the possible way to understand ourselves and the opposite person. 

The Main key is active listening to really hear what they are saying and it’s important to check with them to ensure we really comprehend the message they are trying to send.  And not to interpret while they are communicating and say the things that distract with the talks. 

 Small acts BIG changes 

  • In communication, When we disagree or feel attacked, we tend to get defensive and judgmental of what other people are sharing with us. This can move us towards a fight, misunderstanding the people, and ultimately challenging our relationship and bonds. Instead  understand that everyone has their own views and different choices and ways of thinking.

  • And accept their view and share your thoughts if anything wrong or hurting you but ready to face the situation if the opposite person couldn’t match your thoughts.  

  • Try to understand as they are and their view and don’t jump to conclusions as often, and be curious about what the other person is sharing instead of being defensive.

  • Try to pay attention to all their different aspects while they are sharing with you. For example their voice tone, are they speaking fast or slow? How are they holding themselves? Looking at you or somewhere? Are they fidgety, nervous, fearful, over consciousness in their words, breathing quickly, or stammering? These may show beyond the words they’re using.

  • Respecting differences, practicing patience, and seeking clarification is key to avoiding misunderstanding.

Recognize and respect that you and the other person may have different viewpoints, preferences, and ways of approaching situation with their way of talking with their word preference. Embrace these differences rather than trying to change or dismiss them. Understand that compromise is often necessary for a good relationship. Without getting offended try to be genuine with your own needs and actions. Also make efforts to Find solutions that meet both needs and actively work together to find a middle ground.
