Maybe I am just too harsh.




In my interactions with others, I sometimes only use my logic. I am very strong willed and understand the facts very clearly. More times than not, I keep myself limited only to the facts and tend to forget to use my compassion. I become emotionally unavailable to the other person and fail to help.

I have done a lot of reading and open discussion in order to be successful in my interactions with others. I need to have the proper balance between my mind and my heart. I need to see beyond what the facts say and try to listen and understand the other person too. When I do this I will not hurt people with my attitude but will be able to maintain healthy relationships.

  1. I can relate. I have this problem too.

  2. Funny, I have the opposite problem. My communication stems from my heart. I often forget logic and speak emotionally which I believe causes damage as well. Maybe we can trade each other a little of each, what a great combo we'd be :).
