Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA & Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author’s choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.
Communication binds us in good relationships worth preserving, and distorted, ineffective communication bind us in bad relationships. Misunderstandings lead to hate. Lack of a solid education leads to ignorance.
When our communications are poor, we are limited, because we cannot benefit from the wisdom and experience of those around us. As social beings, we learn from others. When we cut ourselves off from a segment of the population due to misinformation or prejudice (which in itself is often due to disinformation and ill-informed assumptions), we cut off that potential source of learning and experience.
We grow through our connections with others.

Have you ever made an assumption about someone you later learned to be wrong? Has a communication error contributed to a strained relationship in your life? I think it's happened to all of us in one way or another. Fortunately for us, awareness of the problem means we can work to remedy it.
