About how people who can't communicate effectively seem to be the ones who have vices and addictions to help them
avoid thinking about or feeling too much real life.
We all have problems.
But of my friends - those of us that can talk through them seem to be involved in less addictive behaviors.
So what it comes down to for me is that my priority in this world is to raise my children to be better people than I am. And now I know I have to teach them how to communicate effectively about their feelings, needs and wants with people in all aspects of their lives.
