I have shared that during my childhood I became withdrawn with my family, not sharing feelings, interest,  dislikes, all the questions, experiences of life lived.  So I learned and created my own form of communication. I am not saying that I have come full circle but I have been presented with situations to improve my voice.  I still struggle here and there but It is nice to know that I’m not the only struggling communicator!  Communication has its place depending on its setting, dealing with family, relationships, friendships, children,businesses or business relations.  It is as if we were all writers and every ten years,  or before, we write our story, communicating what we have processed(changed, eliminated, added, learned) we write about new adventures or becoming more sedentary.  Life is fleeting and things can change in seconds, minutes, hours, weeks, months or years.  Every individual has his or her own story,  internal beauty, and when words are spoken or written on a page, they are meant to be understood, or shared.  If the message is not clear, then get clarification, every story has its own identity and individual importance. People want to be heard, they want their thoughts, convictions to translate what is in their heart and mind.
