40. Can you spend too much time communicating?

Communication is important to relationships, but can too much communication be negative?

Often, we need more honesty and vulnerability. We need to talk kindly to each other and work through problems.

But sometimes our words can turn emotional and angry. They can focus on negative spaces and bring up old pain.

I think there are also times when words are inadequate to repair damage or fill up empty spaces. We need time without words, time for healing, time for action, time to be silent.

Our relationships need action, service, space, boundaries, patience, quietness.

Words are important, but they cannot solve all problems.
