Being honest and sharing your thoughts with you partner is vital for having a healthy relationship. Just communicating doesn’t mean you are doing well – many times, communication takes the form of criticism, listening just to judge the other person, and making insensitive remarks. Being open in a relationship refers to two different aspects – first, revealing your real opinions and concerns, and second, truly listening to your partner and accepting them as they are.
