Communication is key in any relationship! Talk to one another, talk about your feelings, talk about your worries. Fix issues when they come about and don’t push them on the back burner. Mind your tone, don’t push or have an attitude, don’t say things you don’t mean. Be mindful of one another. Talking will help solve issues. If, at times, you don’t agree with your spouse, don’t be quick to fire back. Listen. Try and understand their point of view. And if you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.
Listen to one another, listen carefully, and listen wholeheartedly. Use appropriate body language, don’t roll your eyes, don’t cross your #arms, etc. Be respectful. This is your loved one spilling their feelings to you, wanting to communicate and fix whatever problem may be on hand. Don’t selectively hear what you want to hear, really listen to them. Try and understand their whys, their confusion, and their frustration. There might be some things that are difficult to hear but listen anyway. Try and put aside your frustrations and hear them out first. You will want the same respect when it’s your turn to talk.….READ MORE ON THE NEXT PAGE
