We all have heard that communication is the key, key to all the relations that have been locked because of the anger, misunderstandings and assumptions. The power of soft communication is a under – dog. Even though we all are aware about it, still we miss out when we quarrel because of some reasons. Bridging the gap of understanding is good but we must look that how much effort we are putting in and how much the other, concerned person is.

Importance of Soft Communication
Soft Communication is one of the most important and fundamental topics in our lives. Also, the irony is that it is under – rated and over – rated. Both at the same point in time. It is very much in hype, so many theories, techniques and tricks. But still we got not even a thing, of it being used properly. Because the more generic a terms become, authors pour more knowledge and theories on it. So, it becomes complex, because of the ocean of knowledge does also contradicts some and complement others.
In this article let us have a better and vast understanding.
Communication is of multiple types, but the two broad bases are verbal and non – verbal. Verbal communication is common and very much we all are aware about. But interestingly and surprisingly we all are more inclined on non – verbal communication. The way we walk, talk, stand, sit, behave, improvise – says it all and clear.

So, when we are in a relationship and we sail through the ship. Several times we face storms, cold rains, wild storms and the water getting in ship. Here lets metaphorize water as societal pressure and judgement. As a result, there is so much differences that pit out or digs the gap, gap of communication.
No communication leads to rise of assumption. Why so? Because of the fact that we all are in a hurry to give closure. I do remember it was my organizational behavior class and my mentor Sugandha Sharma did state the reason that why do we form perception biases. The reason that ma’am did mention that the hurry to give closure. I like knowing why and how of things, I love diving deep. And my ma’am MS Sugandha loves sharing the extra so we both did gel well. So, we do have strong soft communication because of having the same goal.

Now back to the topic, like any other pit. This pit needs to be filled. Either with the communication or with the assumptions.
