Marriage and the Moody Blues

The second filter is Emotional States and Reactions.  What mood are you in right now?  It will affect how well you are paying attention to what you are reading.  When we are tired we are not at our best and our listening and communication skills may not be as sharp as when we are more rested.  Research shows that we give others more or less benefit of the doubt depending on how good of a mood we are in. If we are angry, sad, or depressed, we may find our filter more clogged and keep us from clear communication.
