Communication Breakdown: Heat of the Moment

Have you ever lost control of your emotions during an argument? If your answer is yes then you are in good company. In fact, you share something in common with just about every person you’ve ever met. It is a thoroughly human thing to do, losing control of your emotions during an argument. It’s not something to be proud of. It’s certainly something that can be improved upon. But it is understandable. It is a very human thing to do.

Your emotions are real. You should listen to them. They have the power to change our lives. But in the middle of an argument with a loved one, they can confuse our communications. If our emotions are driving the boat, we could end up in treacherous waters. We could say things that we don’t mean. We could say things that we regret.

In the end, the result could be the same. Another failed communication. Another communication breakdown.
