Principles of Interpersonal Communication
This is how Interpersonal Communication is Purposeful in my Life.
Become more aware of who I am as a person ie; my strengths and weaknesses. Also to gain a better understanding of the world of objects, events, and people.
Making me able to be an equal partner in my relationships by being able to relate to others and in turn build more meaningful relationships.
: Be a someone that brings positive vibes rather than negative ones, in real life as well as through social media.
Exactly what my career path is leading me towards. To help others the way that I have been helped through out my life.
When it is time for a not so serious moment and I need that break from "life".
