There are three primary styles of communication.
Passive, assertive, and aggressive are the three primary communication styles. Only One style of communication is good. It is the One that is in the middle- assertive. Which type of communicator are you? Before you answer that ask a few family members what they think your primary style of communication is.
Let this be your next topic of communication with your cup of time partner.
Here are the definitions of each:
Passive- ineffective, rarely getting out what you really mean
Assertive - effective and respectful Aggressive- harsh, not respectful of others, bull headed.
Knowing these definitions...now how do you categorize yourself?
Passive- Assertive - Aggressive. The best style is in the middle. Let's all work to be more assertive in our communications, not just with God and our family members, but with everyone we encounter in our lives. Amen!?!
