About

Creating, maintaining, and strengthening a relationship isn’t always easy. People don’t come with instruction manuals, and every person is different with their own unique needs. How then, do we best learn the way to make ourselves and our partner happy while maintaining everything else in our lives?
Though it may sound cliche, the key is almost always communication. Communication is a two way street, and one of the most common blunders that people make is simply failing to listen to the other person – talking “at” them rather than “to” them. On the other side of the fence from the person who talks without hearing, there is the person who struggles to speak their needs. They may feel like their needs are unimportant, like they would only be burdening their partner with them, or may feel guilty for even having needs at all.
An ideal solution is for both people to learn to communicate more effectively, and usually more frequently as well. Silence is only golden when all the people inside it are comfortable.
Other common issues include people displacing frustrations from other parts of their lives on their partners. The common phrase “don’t take it out on me” is applicable here, but for the other person to have the courage and awareness to say something to that effect at the time is not easy. It requires both not reacting to the content of the initial barrage and being able to calmly tell the other person how you feel.
