Conversations are the DNA of a relationship.
The better the quality of the conversation whether it be verbal, virtual or visual (sign language), the better the quality of a relationship.
As with DNA, the more abnormal the conversation, the more abnormal the relationship.
What is a measure of the quality of your conversation? Honesty.
It is the clarity and openness of your communication that creates strong bonds. Whereas the 'close'ness only hacks away at it.
Are you more honest:
- with a Facebook stranger than with your own spouse?
- with a friend than with your own mother?
- with your cat than with yourself?
Have a conversation with someone you love today. Make it the best one you've ever had.
