Often we keep things bottled up for the fear of hurting the other person, or we are afraid of their reactions. It's always fear that keeps us from opening up. But in the process we keep those things inside, where they ferment and rot until they explode unexpectedly like a volcano sweeping away all the goodness and sweetness of the relationship.
If you want your relationships to grow and become beautiful, make it a habit to speak up, express, no matter how uncomfortable the truth.
2. Don’t assume, clarify
How many times have you had an argument or a fight with someone over an issue but when the truth was revealed, it was not what you had assumed or thought? It is human tendency to assume the meaning of what someone is saying without first being sure of their meaning. This is how miscommunications are born.
How often do we pretend to read the minds of others - she doesn’t like me, he doesn’t think I am beautiful, she hates me, he thinks I am stupid etc. It is possible and and likely happens most of the times that how we see the world is not how the other sees the world.
