My current communication style is honest and is (mostly) respectful. Sometimes when I’m talking, however, I get caught up in what I’m feeling and words don’t come out the way I want them too. Writing is a good alternative for me, but sometimes tone can be misinterpreted, so it’s not a foolproof backup plan. When I try to communicate, I am normally heard but I don’t always place enough emphasis on what I need because I don’t want to be a burden. I talk a bit about the importance of communication in Day 18 of the 30 Days of submission blog series.
