Communication is a good thing. It is the mutual sharing and exchanging of thoughts, ideas and concepts resulting in understanding and it promotes development, change and moving forward. Good communication is vital to relationships of all kinds.

The opposites of communicate: Conceal.
Bottle up. Cover. Suppress. Keep Quiet. Withhold. Lack of communication results in frustration, heartache, feelings of hopelessness, and the loss of good relationships. Needless to say, I don't like it.
