Relationships are better when both parties enter into a dialogue over issues where they disagree. When we enter a dialogue we implicitly agree to listen to the other and continue to dialogue until we can reach a reasonable agreement. Dialogue is hard work. It takes time. It takes patience. Dialogue is far better than destructive arguments where there are only winners and losers. In the end, dialogue brings both parties closer together.

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
