Re: Touble Communicating
Im in a down swing right now but when I read you post it made me laugh.
So I have to thank you for that. I never thought I see this topic here.
You have a wonderful quality/sense of compassion that brought you here. Dont ever loose it. You ask a excellent quesiton. I've found in our family 3 females (2 are bipolar) and 1 male, depressed or not body language and voice tone speak very loud. Here's some idea's,
*Try asking her what would help, ask her what you can do
*Make some coffee, tea, coco sit and give your undivided attention, turn off the tv, radio, cell phone. That says there's nothing more imporant than her.
*Just listen, give eye contact, hold her hand
*Give a hug let her know you're listening
*Go out for a walk hand and hand let her talk
*Sometimes just a touch, says I may not understand but I care
I cant speak for others but for me emotional support is extremely
important. I can tell by my husbands body language, actions, eyes and
voice tone when he's being sincere. I wish the best to both of you.
Thanks for the smile.
