Importance Of Communication

Superior Essays
Communication used to be my worst skill and now after years of developing perspective on my own thoughts in comparison to others have I excelled in communication which has served as my most valuable skill. Talking with people has always sparked my interest for as long as I can remember. Interactions involving controversial and speculated topics have served as one of my favorite traits. My communication wasn 't always a good at a time It was very poor. As a young teen I’d neglect the feelings and thoughts of others because of my selfish focus on myself. When in school or in a predicament between family or friends I would block out others thoughts and feelings in comparison to my own. This was because of my tendency to have “the world revolve …show more content…
For example, school was a place of insecurity and self doubt while growing up. First experiencing bullying in Fourth grade I felt as though my life had no worth because of how my peers viewed me less than them. Intenses where I would have no other choice but to sit by the school 's yard duties because of fear I’d have a dodge ball thrown at me. Constantly told by children, “You can 't play with us”, “You 're weird” shook my understanding of where I belonged. To this day those children now adults like me are loosely kept in my memory only for moments of reflection I would let the memories hurt me. The bullies that stuck with me the most were three boys who continually pick on me whenever they got the chance. Only later on in life did I see them again, and In the time between seven years old to seventeen, I realized a lot about myself and those three boys.

In response to seeing his face I recoiled and any confidence I had gained was lost.

This issue was within myself, and constructed by my constant hate for myself because of years of …show more content…
My ability to be analytical and pay attention to detail has set me apart from many individuals as well. An example would be working in my current and past jobs. When I got my first job responsibility was very evident. At the time I hadn 't gotten my licence so my father would drive me to work every time I’d worked. I appreciated his dedication to me having a job which I took pride in and in return get respect because of it. Although my work ethic was impeccable my boss at the time had many anger issues and harassed me and many other co workers. We were as different as night and day working against each other. An issue had presented itself where my boss was being unorthodox in the way he’d treat me and the rest of the staff, which I wasn 't so good at keeping quiet about. Given my personality to solve conflict I had talked to my boss and delivered points on how I wished to be treated in the workplace. Unfortunately he had been a very erratic character so my resolution angered him. Realizing the behavior wasn 't going to stop I put my two weeks in for resignation and moved on to a positive management elsewhere. Recently hired at my current job at AMC, the atmosphere of respect and great management has kept me in a very happy place. My resolution skills have served me greatly through conflict in life. Moving forward in my life I’d
