Communication & Relationships: Help For Men & Women!
If there were one key element that breaks down relationships, it would have to be a lack of effective communication. From the slightest misunderstandings to grave misinterpretations, when two people are not speaking the same language, they most likely will need some help with their relationship.
So how can a couple side step this common trap?
My answer is always to learn the skills so you can talk with and understand your partner. This is such a vital piece in having a loving, growing, and lasting relationship.
Whether you are a man or a woman one thing is for sure, when you want your partner to understand what you are telling them you communicate in a way that feels most comfortable for you. In other words, if you are a direct person your communication will be direct. While on the other hand, if you have a softer approach so will your communication. Here in lies the problem, most people communicate from their gender and personality instead of communicating in a way the other person can understand and relate to.
I saw with every couple I worked with that they needed relationship help specifically with how to communicate their thoughts, feelings and perspectives. In each case, he and she were not speaking in a way the other could hear, which caused unnecessary hurt, anger, and resentments.
The amazing part in this is that once a couple knows how to speak with and understand one another, an incredible amount of problems that existed in their relationship immediately go away.
Problems that were previously considered hard to get through become little things that simple need to be talked through together. Effective communication really is an amazing tool that creates the best relationships.
