Relationships are important to every individual as they provide us with comfort, love, and support. People may feel like they understand what is needed to have a successful relationship but may not take into consideration that we all grew up communicating differently. Most individuals tend to love and communicate the way that they witnessed as a child or through previous experiences. Their past could have been effective but could also have been toxic and negative.
What many individuals tend to forget is that communication can easily make or break a relationship at any given time. Now with present day technology, we would imagine that it has become easier to communicate with those that we love, but it has also made it more difficult to really speak to one another and relate on an emotionally level with someone.
Here are some things to keep in mind in order to continue to grow effectively in communicating with your partner:
According to John Gottman, “Make dedicated, nonnegotiable time for each other a priority, and never stop being curious about your partner. Don’t’ assume you know who they are today, just because you went to bed with them the night before. In short, never stop asking questions. But ask the right kind of questions.”
