Introducing Featured Resilience Speaker Carol Pilkington

Part 1/5 – Completing Cycles of Communication
Written by: Carol Pilkington

Let’s start with a simple definition of a cycle. A cycle is a single complete execution of a periodically repeated phenomenon: A year constitutes a cycle of the seasons. There are many types of cycles. I am going to be discussing cycles having to do with human behavior and interaction. In both seasonal and human cycles, there is life and death which is one of the most fundamental cycles that we take for granted.

Cycles of communication in relationships are often most difficult to complete. When there is conflict and little to no effort by one or both parties to resolve issues, they hang in the air uncompleted. This has a cumulative effect, and it ripples out to every area of our lives. For years, I would go along with others just to avoid hurting feelings or upsetting people. I didn’t realize I was compromising my own values. It even got to the point that I had to question what really mattered to me; what did I stand for? It seemed that pleasing others and not rocking the boat, so to speak, became more important than being true to me, whatever that meant.

Each time we have an incomplete interaction with another it adds to the conversation that repeatedly runs in our minds. I should have said or done this, or I didn’t mean to say or do that; I wonder what they meant by that; why did a situation have this outcome when I meant it to be this way? When these questions and many others linger in the mind with the hundreds of people that are in our lives and the pattern continuously repeats itself, it can cause us to doubt and worry. When we don’t have clean and clear communication that leaves each person feeling incomplete, dis-ease begins to creep in whenever we are with them and we walk on eggshells, sidestepping and avoiding certain topics and issues. How often have you just simply stopped being in a relationship with someone because you no longer felt comfortable? I’m not talking about the acquaintances that come and go, I’m talking about the relationships we have invested time and energy that includes family. Think what a toll this all takes on our psyche.

I’m not saying don’t use discernment and discretion but when a mind is confused and clouded with doubt because of an accumulation of incomplete cycles of communication, it leaves us almost incapable of making sound decisions.

Carol Pilkington, Spiritual Counselor/Emotional Intelligence Trainer reminds us:

Incomplete cycles of communication inhibit our ability to be in open, honest, and authentic relationships.
It also prevents us from being able to solve problems effectively.

Carol will be speaking more about what it takes to complete cycles of communication at Resilience for Harmony.
