“Communication is a two-way street”, someone said.
To communicate both need to want to be there, want to listen and understand, want to say and be understood.
It’s easy to communicate when what we want to say is not blocked or hidden.
Sometimes someone admits to have things blocked and can’t communicate.
Sometimes it can be noticed by unfinished phrases or a little discomfort.
When it happens to me I know it can be worse to force anything. It has to come naturally.
Many transfer those blocked things unsaid to actions. It’s easier and sometimes they are not even aware they do it.
All I can say is that I’m there to listen, just in case.
It can be helpful just saying there is something blocked I guess. And I hope.
