@Paytra_ speaks on communicating emotionally
"I mean, I'm a songwriter/artist so I feel like I can be extremely dramatic and poetic, but it comes from a good place. I ALWAYS talk in person, social-media and texting just is NOT ideal. That's a recipe for disaster."
How do you communicate?
Well, generally speaking I'm pretty closed off and not quick to open up to you. However, if we are talking about a relationship: I'm on the BALL with communication.
Is communication key?
YES. How can we work through our differences if you can't even talk to me? I mean, I feel like to find the right "person," you need to find someone who communicates the same way as you, and considers your feelings. Holding on to feelings isn't healthy for any type of relationship or friendship. Also, in times that call for communication, it's probably a perfect time to learn more about this person and become closer to them! If you can't do that, it's not going to last very long.
If you’ve had issues communicating, how have you improved your communication skills?
I guess my biggest issue is saying things I don't mean in the heat of the moment. Like I said, I'm very in touch with my emotions as an artist, so I loose a sense of logic when I'm upset or even excited. I have this new thing: I stop when things get intense, and take a break. Giving myself a few hours to think (and write) usually saves me from saying some pretty ridiculous things. It all depends on the person.... when it comes to conflict, I get way too emotional. But my best songs FOR SURE come out of those feelings... even though a lot of them are so dramatic lol!
