The bedrock of any relationship is communication; yet, the ability to communicate isn’t intrinsic to our natures. We must learn to do it.

Have you ever said something you didn’t mean? Have you ever struggled to express your feelings? Have you ever said something you later regretted? Have you ever acted on misunderstanding and either been hurt or hurt someone else? Do you find yourself arguing endlessly with neither giving in nor anything getting accomplished? Have you tried to correct someone in sincerity only to have them be offended? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then this book is for you.
Learn to express yourself in ways that others understand and can relate to. Learn to avoid the dangers of misunderstandings and cut through tangled emotions to discern what is really trying to be said.
