Do you know that you need to improve communication in your relationship?

Are you wondering how can you can improve communication skills in my relationship?

Let us start with a key question...

What do you desire for your relationship?

Harmony? Love and connection? Calm? Significance? Certainty? Excitement? Fulfilment? That wonderful feeling that someone 'gets you'? Cares about you? Loves to talk to you??

To create a relationship like this, you will need potent communication, not necessarily all of the time, but at least some of the time.

Healthy, strong and loving

relationships require healthy, strong and loving communication.

But some people struggle.

Some partners want their spouse to 'open up' more and complain that they don't talk about how they are feeling. Often when this happens, it creates separation and disconnect as needs are no longer being met and one or both of the couple feels insignificant, taken for granted, undervalued or unheard. The couple then starts to doubt their relationship and question if it is wrong.

Often it isn't wrong; it is merely a disconnect caused by inadequate or non - existent communication. Many couples break up because of the emotions caused by miscommunication.
