So many times messages get distorted somewhere along the lines of communication. Have you ever tried to tell someone something and after it is communicated to the intended party, it has been garbled into a completely different message and has taken on a meaning (or life) of its own!? Or vice versa, when you receive a message intended for you, it has been imbued with all sorts of ‘noise’ (feelings, biases, prejudices, opinions, lack of knowledge etc) and has adopted a different meaning from what the ORIGINAL sender intended?! How can we avoid these nuances and miscommunications in our every day life? Simple: Go to the source. Without being paranoid…use discretion and never believe 100% everything you hear, especially things of a negative nature. 

Oh and COMMUNICATE, COMMUNICATE and COMMUNICATE objectively!
