Life skills for everyone
Life skills are exactly that - the skills to negotiate through and around troublesome situations in life.
This negotiation process is embodied in communication, either verbally or non-verbally.
We communicate to get our point of view across and the ego is in charge. It’s the ego’s job to showcase our personality, our take on life, our beliefs, likes and dislikes.
Sometimes our point of view wins the battle of the egos. Sometimes we compromise. Sometimes we lose the battle of communication and we clash. Sometimes relationships end or are severely damaged because of the need to be right. The matter of the fact is, we communicate - that’s what we do.
During my sessions to impart life skills, I listen and then I teach - how to listen, how to answer or how to react. Or not react.
