Miscommunication is a common malady of relationships. But what is at the heart of miscommunication? Usually one person is operating from a perspective of what he wants and the other person is operating from a perspective of what she wants. As a consequence, the two approach viewpoints from two very different personal perspectives. It gets worse when one of the perspectives is not merely what one wants, but what one wants from the other!! Did you catch that? It’s bad enough when we are operating from a perspective of what we want; it’s worse when we are operating from a perspective of what we want from another. At this point, we’re blatantly seeking to get our own way and get the other person to behave in a manner that gets us what we want too. When two people are operating from two entirely different motivations, is it any mystery as to why there is miscommunication?!
