Every movement and non-movement we make is a form of communication. How do you communicate fear, withdrawal, avoidance, shutting down, disagreeing, and an uncaring attitude? If you aren’t sure, others can probably tell you.
Begin to pay attention to what your eyes and arms and facial expressions communicate. Our body language speaks louder than our words.
“The gesture is the thing truly expressive of the individual – as we think so will we act.” –Martha Graham
“An avoidance of true communication is tantamount to a relinquishment of my self-being; if I withdraw from it I am betraying not only the other but myself.” – Karl Jaspers
