Our relationships with others are an important part of our life and the world we live in. Sure, how those relationships work and thrive has changed over the years. Email and social media has modified how we interact but it is still a relationship world. There is nothing more important than face to face interaction to cultivate a relationship. But the immediate gratification and constant communication aspects of our society can negatively impact our relationship time, so can our just plain bad habits.
Here are a few ways that you may be undermining a relationship when carrying on a “live” conversation.
· Constantly looking at your phone
· Lack of eye contact
· Being late
· Poor listening
These are obvious, and we all know better, but how many of these do you still do? Value the time spent in face to face conversation with others. Respect that relationship!
