Logically then, this is the foundation for my accepting myself. When you simply do your best, you're not in competition with anyone else and you are free to appreciate yourself as God made you. C. S. Lewis says in The Screwtape Letters that God wants man "in the end, to be so free from any bias in his own favor that he can rejoice in his own talents as frankly and gratefully as his neighbor's talents--or in a sunrise, an elephant, or a waterfall. He wants each man, in the long run, to be able to recognize all creatures (even himself) as glorious and excellent things.
If you are a single, the following principles will enhance your personal communication with others in your circle of friends. If you are dating, you will certainly want to apply them immediately. For those ofyou who are married, these principles can dramatically improve your communication with your spouse and children. Most marriages do not ever develop intimacy beyond the level of communication between spouses-and that, of course, depends on how much you desire openness and verbal intercourse.
1. Work at It Doing what comes naturally may be the motto for many in our culture, but becoming a good communicator does not just happen. All of us have been twisted by the self-centeredness of our lives, so we need to make a lot of effort based on solid commitment to better communication. God does not just wave a magic wand over us after we enter into a personal relationship with Him. Instead, He gives us the will and the desire, and then helps us do it if we get moving. My philosophy is that if you want someone to know that you are bleeding, you've got to hemorrhage.
