Many a time, there has been a situation where the conversation has led to an argument and then, a misunderstanding. Hope the “many a time” becomes “rarely” after a good read here.
“Am I articulate enough?”
This is a question that you can ask yourself when you recollect your thoughts about a conversation that didn’t go
your way the right way. Were you saying what you actually wanted to say? Well, if yes then great, if no then even a single gesture could have given you away.
Speaking is a skill , that includes not only the right words, but also the appropriate facial expressions and body language. The words must have instructions or information just right for the listener. Do not try to say more than required especially in formal situations. Informal is an open field where your relationship with the speaker or speakers differ. Here too there are differences, repressed anger that is usually released in the form of humour, love for a particular person is usually displayed in the form supporting statements.
I urge you to look back on a few situations and recollect your words whether they were right or not, I also encourage you to prepare… yes, for a similar situation in the future where you can be articulate enough to get the job done. Some may say we will never get into a similar situation, but I believe that if things are not happening the way you want it to most of the time, then the problem is yours, stop blaming and take charge of your words that will immediately change into action.
