Announcer: The following minute is brought to you by Relationship Excellence dot com.
Owen Williams: Welcome to The Relationship Minute. I'm Owen Williams.
Owen Williams: People will often say that communication is the downfall in relationship and then reality, I think we all know how to communicate. What we need to understand is, is there a receptivity in the other person to what it is we're wanting to communicate? It is always the responsibility of the person speaking to ensure that the message has been received. And so we need to look at the environment. Is this a good time to share what we need to share? Is the other person in a position where they can actually hear us? Because just to say what we have to say and think that that's communication; frankly that's not enough. We need to care more than that.
Owen Williams: So how do you need to adjust your communication so that your message is received by the ones you love. Thank you for taking The Relationship Minute. And remember it's later than you think.
