1     Communication is essential in life. When two or more people exchange information, they communicate. Someone sends a message and another (or others) receives it.
2     To avoid misunderstandings, the communication must be clear. Otherwise, there might be fighting and hurt feelings. Communication can help to build or destroy relationships. For example, if you express your feelings using kind words, people will probably respond in a more positive way. If you are mean, people might not want to spend time with you. Good communication is also important to expressing what you need.
3     In general, there are three ways or styles of communication. The first style is the passive communication style. A passive person does not offer any opposition even when feeling pressured. The second style is the aggressive communication style. An aggressive person is hostile and unfriendly. The third style is the assertive communication style. An assertive person communicates in the healthiest way by being direct yet respectful.
