Communication can be very challenging. Why?
The simple answer is, different conditioning. Everyone has it. It comes in thousands of forms from our own perception, parents, family, teachers, politicians, priests, society and the media.
Communication is far more difficult between lovers. When two minds start to move beyond the mundane ordinary things in life to the world of concepts, communicating starts becoming more and more difficult. Each individual has such different experiences, concepts and conditioning of their own it can be challenging to move through to a place of complete honesty, non-judgement and complete open-mindedness.
The healthiest most challenging practice is to move to a place inside where you can be truly honest and authentic to yourself. Sometimes when you are considering someone else you wear a mask. The key is don’t become the mask.
