Communication Barriers

Most times our communication is good enough to convey the message of what we are trying to say. For various reasons there are other times it can be difficult. As communication breaks down it may be necessary to use more words to get our message across. Then comes along the invention of t-shirts that fortunately make the points we are trying to convey very succinct.

Have you ever been suckered by Buzz Feed with catchy headlines like ‘20 (something or another) that are guaranteed to make you laugh. If you don’t laugh you must be hollow.’? Buzz Feed is no fool because, after all, don’t we all want a good laugh. Or maybe, as in this example, to refute our last failed lover’s conviction that we are hollow? For whatever the reason, we bite.

Regardless, below you will find some great examples of bridging the age gap communication barrier:

If you didn’t find these funny, please let know in the comments below. Also, if you did them funny, please let me know in the comments below. LOL! That’s my own attempt at humor, humor that I should probably leave to the professionals.

You know what I say? ‘No, Matt, we don’t have a clue. What do you say?’ Great question! I say, ‘it’s better to have a bad sense of humor than none at all.’ Not sure if I made that up or not. Feel free to Google who first came up with that. After all, I’ve been curious. I just don’t care. LOL

Thanks for reading.

Wishing you much love and peace,

Consider sharing this blog with others. Victim/survivors of abuses, more often than not, carry this burden silently alone, not knowing how to deal with it or where to turn, but need hope. Loved ones and caregivers also need support. We never know who is or wants to reach out for help. This blog might be of help to caregivers and loved ones of abuse. Silence is deadly and if together we are able to help or save just one life, isn’t that worth it?

The other day I shared a story on FB about losing two teeth in an accident, and someone said everything isn’t everyone’s business.
