I was recently interviewed on the radio. The mere thought of speaking and being broadcast to thousands of listeners was enough to excite and jolt ones nerves into submission. Why is it that once we become overly emotional or excited, it becomes challenging to communicate and to truly express ourselves verbally? Now some of us are thankfully born with the gift of the gab, which essentially means that you are very capable of speaking and communicating in any situation. On the other hand, some of us find it challenging to overcome and to get on top of our extreme emotions.
Considering how our emotions impact on our ability to communicate effectively in all instances, it is so important to understand and accept what our strong extreme emotions are and exactly what it is that makes us tick.
