Communication Blockers Part I

Being alone much more than some other people, I’d like to have somebody with whom to talk about my day.  I am going to talk about ways people keep from communicating with others, maybe, without even knowing it.

First there is the mail which grabs their attention then the TV.  Some people are not very patient about someone wanting to talk with them in the middle of a program.  Also there are people who are a double threat.  When the commercial comes on, they read the newspaper.  What they are communicating when they do this is, “Leave me alone, I don’t want to be bothered.  You are not important enough for me to pay attention to.”

Don’t forget telephone calls which must be answered right then no matter how long it takes.  What is really annoying is when you have been ignored, but he or she is happy to quit reading or watching TV to talk to someone else  and then gets annoyed if you try to interrupt them.

Sometimes when you get an “answer” it is more of a question putting you on the defensive wondering, ”      Why did I ever decide to tell him or her about this?” He or she might not like it if they find out later that it was about something important and they do not find this out from you. This person is  an “attack” mode when he or she does this and that makes you fearful of bringing it or anything else up again.
