Yvette Erasmus on what happens when your needs are not fulfilled, the difference between needs and feelings, choicefulness, taking responsibility, stopping playing the victim and much more.
Effective communication is at the heart of strong relationships.
A critical aspect of effective communication is learning how to express our needs. But in order to learn to express first we need to get in touch with our needs.
Communication can come into conflict when needs are unfulfilled. Unmet needs can lead to feelings of anger, confusion, disappointment, frustration, hopelessness, irritation, sadness, loneliness and embarrassment, to name only a few.
Fully understanding what we need makes the next step in our communication easier–asking for what we need to enrich life. But it’s not as easy as it sounds.
