The Energy You Give In Every Interaction
Most of your interactions with people generally go in one of two ways, those that give you energy and those that suck the energy right out of you. The same person might do both depending on the circumstances. Anyone that is a parent knows this because there are times that your kids just lift you up and bring you so much joy. There are those times though they drive you to the point of demanding that your spouse find a babysitter for the night before you lose your mind.
This is likely the case at work or school also where there are those people we struggle to be around when they get in a mood.
Have you ever wondered what type of a person you are to other people? When you are talking with someone and the conversation has you energized and motivated, have you ever wondered if the other person feels the same way? Communication is more than just the words we say. You can tell by someone's tone and their responses if they just want the conversation to be over with.
We have to remember that as humans we are selfish and are usually only thinking about what we get out of an interaction. We also need to think of what someone is getting from us in return. Relationships are a two way street and if you are getting more than what you are giving you will find the other person wanting to interact with you less and less.
