Giving Priority to Openness and Affirmation
Season 2, Episode 80
In part, healthy relationships are defined by an open spirit. Some, however, struggle to know how revealing they can afford to be, and the result is a closed nature. In this podcast we will identify 8 reasons people can relate with a closed spirit, then we will discuss how to adjust so your communication style will not be hindered by a guarded, calculated nature.
Something to Think about
In this episode, we learned that:
- Often a closed nature indicates a history of low trust and high control.
- Change can happen when you determine that you do not have to live in perpetual reaction against others’ behaviors.
- Your self-revealing behavior can become a form of affirmation.
“When are you inclined to be non-revealing? What stress might be driving your behavior in that moment?”
