There's nothing more depressing than keeping quiet about your feelings. It hurts when you have to keep things to yourself that you actually need to let out. It's one of the healthiest things to have a good level of communication with your partner, the back and forth of feelings into words is just beautiful and it helps both of you stay happy. This article is going to focus on the 12 things you need to think about and say before it's too late.
1. Is Something Bothering You?
I've seen a lot of couples break apart due to a huge lack of communication. Asking if something isn't quite right with your partner doesn't take much effort and it makes them feel like you're there for them and they can talk to you when they're going through a rough patch. It doesn't take much to ask them if you see a change in their moods, if you feel like they're not quite the same with you, if you feel a difference in the way they talk to you, it all probably means they're sad or hurt about something and you can make it that much easier on them by letting them know you're there for them.
Nor you or your spouse is perfect. Confessing all the negative behaviors which you have is one of the best ways to get a very difficult conversation started. You should be prepared to make any changes that are needed after taking a very honest survey of your faults. This is especially if you think that your spouse should make alterations too. Try speaking in the same way to your partner in which you want to be spoken to. First think about how you pick things and then think about how your spouse does. Try to ask questions from yourself like “what makes your partner to bear all, what makes them angry or shutdown and when they are very responsive?” When you always blame someone for something, they will stop talking to you. The best way to do discussions is without finger-pointing.
2. I Need You
The happiest couples are those who acknowledge each other's importance and how lost they are without each other. "I need you" are three very simple yet very powerful words that can grow the love between the two of you by ten fold. You are in love with them, there's a reason you chose to be with them, there is absolutely no shame in admitting how much you need them in your life, in your ups and downs, in your accomplishments, in your successes and your failures, you need them in everything.
There is no shame in telling anyone how much you need them; in fact these are the words which can boost your relationship in a good way. - Continue reading on next page
