“Houston, we have a problem.”


So much heartbreak can be caused when misunderstandings happen.

Yes. Sometimes people intentionally hurt us. Not denying that does happen.
However, more often than not, hurts happen by accident and/or simply because we misunderstood a word or an action. In that case, it is imperative to the life of the relationship that honest and gentle communication happens to clear the misunderstanding.

Communication is vital to relationships.
Open communication and a willingness to understand the other side
can avoid or clear up most conflicts.

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all,
who is over all and through all and in all.
Ephesians 4:2-5

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Ephesians 4:29-32
