Great relationships have something in common—great communication. I hear you groan as you think of those conversations you’ve had that were anything but great. But the good news that I’m here to tell you is that you can learn this stuff. I have myself and it’s made the world of difference to my marriage and in fact all my relationships. Do you want to see change in your relationships? If your answer is yes then you may have to change a few ways you’ve been operating. If you are ready to learn some effective communicating with me, let’s begin with some of Peta’s wild and wacky communication tips.

Oh, and by the way, I’m going to be parked here for a while over the next few weeks so get your notebooks out and your learning brain switched on.

Tip # 1

Give more grace. Easy peasey—not. But then new things are never easy at first; it takes some hard work and dedication and may I also say―some faith. God can do anything with a faith-filled and willing heart. Especially if others mess up and say all sorts of negative, accusing or just plain unloving things. But if you apply this tip for better relationships with your partner, friend, teen or difficult colleague, I reckon you just may begin to see some significant changes just a little down the track.

Others need someone to give them a little unconditional acceptance because life is simply tough and sometimes things really stink so just like you, they struggle. And at those times people just don’t feel safe so having a person somewhere in their world, who seems to be on their side, is like a lifeline in their drowning world.
