What works best for my family is that the priorities in life are relationships, needs, feelings, and people. I think a lot of young people these days are lacking the commitment to a relationship. Everything in our world changes so quickly and is disposable that is how some people view relationships.
I prefer eye-to-eye contact and enjoy talking to someone face-to-face versus a text or e-mail. I want to see facial expressions and then I can judge how to deal with the situation.
We have lost the art of communication and need to work on strengthening our skills and spend time listening to people and enjoying each others company.
