Learning From The Black Bird


This is another excerpt from Alex’s blog.

I took a photograph yesterday of a male blackbird in full song.  The blackbird sings to inform the world of its territorial claims, which will be the basis for attracting a mate and raising young.  On the same day I saw male blackbirds fighting over territory.  By way of singing the male blackbird is communicating to all other blackbirds its existence and territory, thus it avoids considerable conflict with other blackbirds that might enter its domain.

If you are unable to communicate your needs or boundaries to others you will be ignored, your boundaries invaded.  Good communication avoids unnecessary conflict, misunderstandings and problems.

Be polite,be nice but assert yourself in important matters, fight if necessary.Its easier than being pushed around,harbouring resentments and being passive aggressive.
