Practicing Restraint Improves Your Social Connections

 In Emotions, Lifestyle, mindset, Relationships

Success in relationships is based on restraint.

‘What you don’t do’ often defines the quality of your social interactions. Restraining from one action provides you with an opportunity to engage in a more useful activity. Stopping yourself from speaking constantly gives you the ability to be a better listener, for instance.

The modern world is unrestrained in many aspects. In such a chaotic, loud, and pretentious landscape, doing the opposite of what others do sets you apart as an influencer.

Here are two ways you can restrain yourself in your social interactions to improve your communication skills:

Do you truly listen?

Mask Your Intelligence

Nobody likes a show-off who wants to display his know-it-all attitude. Humans are social creatures who thrive when there is open and honest communication. Not when one is trying to trump the other with their display of superiority.

People dislike being corrected. Be curious and show people you are interested in what they have to say even if you know their opinions are flawed. Asking them open questions will lead to a better resolution than telling them outright they are wrong.

When people talk, listen. Truly listen. They will, in fact, give you all the information you need to know about them.

Let others have the spotlight and make them feel important. They will associate their own sense of importance to you.

What Everyone Thinks Is Their Business

Avoid falling into the trap of caring about what other people think about you. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. So allow them to form their own opinions about you. 

Asking for the approval of other people shows that you are unhappy about aspects of your personality.

When you decide to stop caring so much about other people’s opinions, you experience freedom.
