Two people I know just made friends after almost two years of not speaking to each other. And now you can hardly keep these two apart.They are enjoying the most fulfilling and incredible friendship. They stopped speaking over the silliest miscommunication. An incident that was quite easily resolved when they bumped into each other after two years and both apologized for being wrong. What a waste of two years of good friendship.

Well,communication is one of the most powerful devices known to man, yet most of us don’t know how to make use of this incredible tool. Sometimes a few words is all it takes to fix a tough situation.

A great example of communications breakdown is the story of the man who was walking down the road when he noticed his neighbor struggling with a refrigerator in the doorway to his house.

The man rushed over and began helping his neighbor. They both shunted and grunted for a while and stopped without being able to budge the refrigerator.

“Well, I guess we’ll have to get a bunch of people to help us move this darn thing in,” said the man.

“In?” replied his neighbor. “I’m trying to move it out.”

A few words is all it would have taken to correct the breakdown in communication.If there are people I have not spoken to in quite a loong time because of petty unresolved arguments and if you by chance stumble across this blog entry, please accept my apology. Not for what I might have said or done, but for not valuing our relationship enough to make things right.
