Another Bachelor's decision is final and what better show to demonstrate the communication among women in competition, men discussing their feelings and the public's silent, yet opinionated responses. Each season takes the viewer on a journey through the intentions, creative approaches and desires of those participating. The Bachelor (and Bachelorette) has various communications, experiences and discussions that the other players are not aware of or able to understand. The final show demonstrates what goes on behind the scenes and how the love story developed for the couple.
How does this relate to your own story? Where do the competitors in your life demonstrate their strategic approaches and make attempts to understand what is going on in your story? With online chat groups, reviews and social media people are feeling more connected but then also experiencing the negative aspects of these sources. Some take their profile down and avoid it all together. Communication styles become more obvious and some choose to vent their frustrations on line for added support. For overall health, one must be able to vent comfortably but needs in-person connection to feel understood. Seeking this only through the Internet is less fulfilling, isolating and leads to miscommunications. In the Kansas City area, there are support groups, therapists, coaches and classes designed to provide safe and healthy outlets for various topics. If there is a request for a specific topic, they may be interested in designing a focus group.
Group facilitators work in the hospitals, government programs, private practice offices and classrooms. They are highly trained to address appropriate communication styles and the local universities offer classes teaching communication trends, styles, in a variety of languages. Check the local employment office for ideas. Although most everyone has been subject to abrupt online comments or reviews, how are you extending positive energy in these situations? The Bachelor may not see the behaviors of all of the women immediately but most episodes reveal patterns and styles of the individuals, eventually. These are learned behaviors and some are triggered by emotions, fear of loss, and fear of success or intimidation.
In healthcare, communication is key. Listening to yourself, your doctor's recommendations, your insurance options and carriers, your family and circle of influence all comes into play. The ability to discern the intentions, the cost, the cause and effects can be overwhelming at some point. Consider how this would be in another country and foreign language. The requirement for patience is an understatement, but expressing your needs positively, to resources, trusted professionals, instructors and mentors will certainly lead to more success. Consider a communications class and reflecting ideas with a friend or relative. How might you be more effective, without being swayed by influences that may not have your best interest in mind?
Some of the leading professionals have the most to overcome in negative reviews yet their networks and recommendations, from reputable sources, speak volumes. Remember to understand your hot buttons and what areas may be weaknesses to your ability to respond most effectively. What environment do you thrive in most and where can you get the necessary support? A holistic approach evaluates the environment (by choice and selection), the family system, the social issues or problems, financial options and leads to an overall picture of health. A simple referral is a call away and the Internet has allowed the rural communities to do more helpful research. Local libraries can reduce costs for charges and have staff willing to listen.
Enjoy the journey, seeking opportunities to learn with no expectation on mistakes, other than the lesson. Others' negative energy will dissipate when choosing healthy outlets to avoid ineffective communication patterns. Developing connection, inside these limits, makes stronger friendships.
