Communication, Effective Communication and the Individual
Human beings need many different elements for the sustainability of life and perhaps one of the most vital of those elements is, communication.
Under any circumstances, human beings are in need of communication. If you think that it exists only in verbal scale, you are unaware of the benefits of the unlimited world it will provide you with.
From the moment you read these lines, your opinion on communication will completely change; believe me!
Communication is basically the only way an individual can fully express him/ herself, socialize, and understand the people in front of him/ her. To evaluate it in another way, it is a qualitative and elaborate action that removes the individual from a being that merely exists living on consumption, and turns him/ her into a socially active being.
Communication plays a pivotal role in ensuring harmony particularly between individuals and societies and in making sure that the interactions are of quality.
It is extremely important for you to know that; as long as communication exists and the level of reciprocity increases, it actually makes you more of who you are, allows you to express yourself and makes you a part of the social formation. Like everyone else, you will need it very much for a mentally and spiritually healthy life.
With communication, the individual does not only express him/ herself, but beyond that, he/ she also gets clear on what the world around him/ her is made of. This clarity can bring people closer, or it can also cause them to move away from each other.
But the main issue of importance is that, as a result of existence of healthy communication, individuals have the chance to understand one another more accurately. At a time when understanding and listening are of utmost importance, but are so neglected, you should know that your communication skills and your focus not only on yourself but also on the people around you will have many benefits. Because listening while communicating, as much as talking, will be a good guide for you to build valuable relationships with the people around you.
Remember that in communication people are just as valuable as you.
All kinds of elements in the communication processes provide an opportunity to further increase the interaction between the parties in communication. Words, symbols, gestures and facial expressions all determine the direction of the discourse in the communication process.
All individuals have a unique communication style; and the quality of this communication is undoubtedly fueled by individuals’ identities, cultures and standarts of judgment. However, it is valuable for an individual to be in tune with the conditions of their time and place in the name of expressing him/ herself, feeling understood and feeling like a part of a moment, place or a community. That is why the time that is slipping by right in front of you, the space you are in, your understanding of communication that is accordant with the faces you know, that adds value to them and thus attains it in return, will make you a substantial individual in society.
You are capable of expressing yourself clearly and being properly understood by people; believe in this, trust in your words, knowledge and words reflected on time from the depths of your soul!
Although the current communication that takes place in the physical sense is the basic vital function of people, the digital platforms it is carried onto points to a radical change in the form of communication.
Communication processes that are performed without seeing one another and that are mostly based on written texts, seem to be the new way for people to express themselves. Will this new digital communication process replace the common communication methods? Undoubtedly, traditional communication will not just lose its everlasting place in our lives.
Nevertheless, you will have to keep up with all the changes and transformations that communication has gone through regardless of work, school or private life. You have to make sure that the more you can adapt to the transforming nature of it, the easier it will be for you to understand the rest of society, express yourself according to new standards and land on your feet in communication processes.
Times are changing; it’s up to you to make the choice to seize it and not get lost in its gears.
Regardless of physical or digital, what you should keep in mind is that communication does not only involve instant interaction processes; in fact, it is the embodiment of content of the information transferred from today to tomorrow that ensures that today’s individuals and societies pass down something valuable to the next. For this reason, in order to understand, to be understood and to remembered forever, you also have to better yourself and the people around you in the communication processes.
Sharing the values that make you who you are with people in the right way, will one day help you to be remembered as a nice, authentic and successful person in their minds.
Feelings in your mind, words in your tongue, now is the time to say something nice.
