Communication in a sentence: The importance of communication with one’s self and others is invaluable.

Communication and inner growth: A look at your communication with yourself and others gives you insights into how you process things, talk about them, relate to them, and so on. This analysis gives you the opportunity to pursue inner growth as you look to ways to be able and express the essence of you through your communication.
Communication and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: How important is communication to me? When did communication start having an important role in my life? What have I learned from communication? How has my communication affected my relationships? Why does communication matter in life? Who influenced my communication? How is my life affected by my communication? How are my relationships affected by my communication?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with communication at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. From this list think of one way communication has helped you find out more about yourself. Write about this situation with the words in your list.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about communication and notice where those emotions arise, where they go, how they flow. From here focus on the feelings and their flow, then allow thoughts to come in and notice what thoughts stand out the most. Pay attention to how your emotions change as you think of different events.
