5 things you probably didn’t know about communication in relationships



Once communication slows down or fades, the relationship get buried under a rubble of unexpressed feelings, resentment, feelings of under-appreciation, rejection and emotional distance.

Without great communication that touches on every sphere of our lives and reaches deep into the souls, we might as well be living a millions apart.

This goes to show just how important communication is in relationships. But just exactly how does communication work? Read on to know.

People are different and the way to communicate with each individual is often different too. You need to understand what works for your partner by being sensitive and also asking questions.

Some people are moved by written words, and some love to look into your eyes as you speak with them. Gentle words worked for your ex doesn’t mean it’ll work for this new babe. The point is; learn how to communicate with your partner specially.

Communication is tightly linked with trust; and this explains why it starts slow.

As communication builds one day at a time, so does trust. And when trust increases, so does communication because you and your partner become unafraid to share anything and everything with each other.

Communicate everything – your emotions, feelings, fears, anger, unhappiness, compliments, concerns, dreams, past, and present and everything else.

Ask questions when you need answers and be a good listener when the answers come. And of course, no secrets, people.

Sometimes you have to call out your partner’s bullshit. You are supposed to help your partner become a better person.

And in order to achieve this, there will be times to call their attention to something they are not doing right. It won’t be as fun as the nights when you’re cuddled up saying sweet nothings… but it is needed.

Think of it as a plant that needs water to survive. You can’t neglect to communicate properly with your partner – and there’s an emphasis on properly here.

You can’t afford to fall short in communication because once it dies, it won’t be long before your relationship follows.
