Common Reasons People find it Hard to Communicate

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation where you really wanted to express how you felt but didn't know what to say? You are not alone! So many times people report feeling uneasy and uncertain about how to handle tricky situations

when speaking with others, especially those to whom we are closest.

If you identify with this but don't know why it's hard for you to respond effectively, take this assessment and find out:

7 SENSIBLE REASONS PEOPLE FIND IT DIFFICULT TO COMMUNICATE

____ You’re afraid of being misunderstood or taken the wrong way

____ You worry that you will be corrected, criticized or invalidated

____ You’re afraid that the other person will not really listen to you

____ You are concerned that the person listening may be insensitive to your concerns and do/say something to hurt your feelings

____ You’re afraid of how the other person will respond to past issues

____ You are unsure if you will be able to express yourself effectively

____ You are afraid of coming across as hesitant, uninformed/foolish

If you found 3-4 areas in which you can relate, this is an indication that you, like so many others are struggling with finding effective strategies and tools so you know what to do in sticky situations in order to move past difficult

and often painful misunderstandings and quarrels.

If you found 4 or more areas, that means that you have probably been struggling with challenges knowing what

to do and the fears of making things worse, if you say/do anything. This can leave you emotionally paralyzed and

can result in your becoming stuck in other areas of your life.

TAKE HEART BECAUSE THERE IS HELP AVAILABLE FOR YOU!
