Hey Sarah! What are you doing out here by yourself? Why do you have your laptop?
By asking questions and seeking clarification on each other's current situation, they can effectively understand each other's intentions avoiding conflict.
Hey Ladies! What a surprise! Are you going to be out here for a bit longer?
Of course! We just came out here to visit you!
When explaining, Sarah understands that using body language and communication, either party can understand one another properly (Stenberg College: Introduction to communication).
I'm sorry, I do have a lot of homework. I'm going to get as much done as I can and I'll come back out to join you?!
Yeah that's perfect! Take your time, hurry back! Sorry for interupting!
Okay! WHO is ready to have a good afternoon!!?!
When approached during a stressful time, Sarah chooses to communicate effectively, rather than jumping to conclusions to allow for a more therapeutic, understood dialogue (Stenberg College: Introduction to therapeutic communication).
