Interpersonal relationships

Attitude, tone of voice, the ability to empathize with those around us, the ability to control our anger and aggressiveness, tact, diplomacy are aspects that mark the types of relationships we have with others. Interpersonal relationships refer to all the relationships we have with those nearby, i.e. family and friends, professional relationships, relationships with bosses or subordinates, customers, relations from social environments we interact with: people you know from church, at a party, at the library, the theater, the barber, club etc. How we interact with others takes its toll on relationships we have with those around us. Violence breeds violence. An uncontrolled anger could trigger a war. On the contrary, people who are calm and balanced will know how to build around them relationships of the same type. Along with aging, entourage in which we live is one we choose, except the family.
Considering these aspects, interpersonal relationships are:
• smooth (characterized by feelings of friendship, love, trust, respect, understanding)
• tensioned (characterized by feelings of anger, fear, jealousy, envy, avenge, hatred)
• indifferent
Obviously, each individual can have relationships that fit all the three types of relationships, but one of these types will prevail. People who offer love, friendship, trust, respect, understanding to those around them will create harmonious relationships based on those feelings. On the contrary, people who can not control their aggressiveness, who let themselves be led by hatred, jealousy, envy or hatred will create similar relationships.
We can see thus how important it is to know what are the types of relationships we have with others, how can we improve them, how we can overcome negative feelings of anger, hatred or revenge, to replace them with love, friendship, trust and so on. We can learn thus how to rebuild our relationships, how to get back together with others, how to forgive, or how to listen to those around us.

    of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog
