Stop Should-ing and Start Sharing

Do you want to improve the quality of communication in your relationships? Stop “should-ing” all over loved ones, and begin to share with them instead. Should-ing is basically imposing your will on another person’s emotional life. Stop telling people what to think, be, or do. No one likes a bossy person, or someone constantly imposing high-handed guidance. Hurt feelings, defensiveness, and withdrawal are bound to ensue. Maintain the idea that you will simply talk about yourself and ask questions about others. Change your “ you should do this” into an “I statement” that reveals your own emotions or desires.
