How do you communicate effectively?

Are you an effective communicator? How did you learn to be?

I always had considered myself to be very direct and clear when I try to describe, explain, or communicate in any type of way. But I am finding out that I am often misunderstood and the things I say end up being very misconstrued and taken harshly. I'm not even talking about controversial opinions. I'm talking about regular socializing. I'm sure that my RBF doesn't help either. It would seem that I manage to always fall short of the point I'm trying to make.

I haven't been able to think of or find any ways to help short of just not talking anymore...

What are your tricks for clear communication? Are there any exercises, courses, classes, youtube videos or apps that you would recommend?
