Communication Breakdown


I find it interesting to hear about and observe the way people interact and communicate, especially online. Before, when people related more in person or on the phone, there was an immediate interaction that engaged you to be more present and potentially to be more accountable in the moment.

But now, there seems to be a lot of disconnect between expectations people have when they want/need something and lack of the same care/courtesy when others communicate with them.

We can push things and people off, ignore them all together, or hide behind words more easily.

While technology has created great advancements in some regards and enabled connections that never would be, it seems to me to also have increased lack of personal depth in terms of how we relate with one another, less accountability and personal responsibility, things get lost in translation, and it provides everyone the easy and convenient ability to disengage, create excuses to not relate with one another, ignore and not answer each other, and ultimately to be disconnected.

I feel that more effort to be present, honoring of each other, and caring is called for if we are going to continue in the vein of these types of communication channels, otherwise we may see a continued and complete breakdown in our relationships.

Knowing and developing a strong sense of your personal values and then translating them consistently across the board into all of your interactions and how you relate to others, as you would want to be treated, would benefit us greatly.

More mindfulness and heart I feel is needed.

  1. I appreciate this post Tania. I’ve actually been thinking about this myself recently, you put it beautifully. I’ve been guilty of this as well as others I’ve interacted with. I will definitely give more care going forward in all my communications. Good post! Hugs Dawn

    • thank you dawn! it’s been on my mind for a while too and i just had to post it today. it’s something i feel we can all stay on top of better. i’ve always felt it is so easy to say a quick thank you, or no thank you, or simple acknowledgment, rather than ignore people. it’s like there’s all these energetic things hanging in the ethers from unanswered thoughts, assumptions, confusion, and along with over-stimulation in general we have a lot bombarding us that we aren’t even aware of that’s there. eek! lol!

  2. Well said Tania!
    While written communication can be such a wonderful way to share in various ways, and a from of creating boundaries or opening up more authentically/emotionally, it really does have a down side of creating more isolation, avoidance, and loss of integrity if not done mindfully and heartfully, like you said.
    Thanks for sharing this important insight.
    ❤ Mia

    • thank you mia! i agree that written communication can be such an opening process. i know it is for myself very much. and yet, as you shared, there is always a potential downfall if we get caught up in something in excess. again, it always stems to balance needed, i believe, and constantly being mindful and aware of things. you’re welcome ❤

  3. YES!! I have to reiterate what the others have said 🙂 A big thank you for authenticating this! There must be something else swirling around too, as I have found myself “calling out” and laying down truths (in the gentlest of ways). Doing so builds self respect, self worth and creates laser beam focus for future manifestation. This new “behavior” is very unusual for me, but part of this expansive time. Love and hugs to you Tania!! XO

    • aw, you’re welcome jennifer. and thank you for sharing the added insights. i agree that there is a lot of “stuff” swirling around right now and really hitting people hard, causing great confusion, frustration, breakdowns, and more. i feel the same and find myself doing much of what you shared being engaged in as well. love and big hugs to you too!! xoox

    Tania Marie shared this post on her blog and Facebook. I couldn’t agree more. It was something I had been contemplating as well, and then Tania put this out, how synchronistic! She puts it beautifully. I have been challenged with this as well as others, I’ve been on both sides to be honest. Note to self, I will do better.
