The Importance of Communication

Jan 9, 2008
To maintain a healthy relationship, you need to be close to your partner. The best way to do this is to talk to each other. Your partner, above all, should be someone you trust and feel secure with. If you have a problem or you feel stressed, it is important to inform them of how you're feeling. This may not only help you feel more optimistic but you may also be surprised at the advise or reassurance that your partner can provide you with when approached.

Many couples tend to bottle their personal problems up and treat their own lives as something that should be kept private from everyone. This is the wrong attitude to take as carrying all your problems on your own shoulders can lead to a feeling of isolation and despair. If your partner is informed of the things that distress you, they will begin to grasp a greater understanding of your personality and appreciate the fact that you turn to them in a crisis.

By maintaining good communication, both of you should feel included in each other's lives and rarely feel confused about any aspects of your relationship. If your relationship is experiencing difficulties or if you have any concerns about your partners behavior, the only way the situation can be restored is to talk out any problems. Many people do not like the thought of confronting anyone, let alone their partner but you are likely to learn a lot from listening to each others thoughts. When you are attempting to sort things out, think rationally in order to prevent the discussion from transforming into an argument.

It is likely that one of you may say something which will evoke anger so you should try to think about your wording before saying it to remain tactful. Be careful to ensure that your points are not all criticism of your partner; if you blame each other constantly, nothing will ever be resolved.

A vital part of communication is listening and if you both fail to do this, then you will only ever see things from your point of view. Put yourself in your partner position when they describe what is bothering them, you will probably realize that sometimes your actions can be just as unreasonable as theirs.

Above all, if both of you care about your relationship with each other, you should find it easy to resolve any issues and keep each other informed. Sharing stories and talking about your day should not feel like an infringement of your privacy but a fun way of getting to know each other better.
