How do you deal with misunderstandings?

You talk about them, of course...

Express yourself.

Misunderstandings can cause a lot of damage and ultimately ruin a relationship if not handled correctly. It's important that whoever you're in conflict with understands your position, but they only can comprehend it if you convey it properly to them. This is you articulating exactly how you feel/think and the message you are trying to get across. Then the receiver of the intended message needs to ask questions to gain a better understanding of the situation if they do not understand something, and then a dialogue can ensue. A misunderstanding is defined as a failure to understand something correctly. And a problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place.

Need help with a misunderstanding?

If a misunderstanding happens (and they often do), here are 5 steps to handle it. 1. Ask for permission to discuss the situation. 2. Ask questions and really listen to the answer. 3. Find the source of the misunderstanding and correct it. 4. Check that understanding has been reached and the emotions dealt with. 5. Confirm that this understanding is now in place and move forward.

If you or someone you know needs help with unraveling a situation that may have resulted in a misunderstanding, please consider scheduling a session with me.

Misunderstandings can be painful and processing them can affect us physically. Taking care of your body during these times is important in your recovery from these mix ups. To help regulate your nervous system and reduce the stress or anxiety this may be causing, consider trying The Substitute. It's a tool that can help you relax and unwind before, during, or after a tense conversation. No tobacco, no toxins, simply air.
