🔥 The phrase that “breaks” communication the most: I EXPECTED.

Every day I get more and more convinced that we, people, simply cannot communicate with each other.

When we have unexpressed expectations, this will lead to disappointments and conflicts, undoubtedly.

Therefore, I think it’s important to:
✔️ Be clear and direct when expressing our expectations towards others.
❌ Not to expect others to “feel” us.

✔️ To be invested in and to confirm if we understand each other’s expectations right.
❌ Not to guess what others are thinking.
