Counseling On Demand

May 30, 2018

Do you want better communication in your relationship?  Do you think it's your spouses big problem?  It's always a problem for both.  You never see a couple where one communicates well and the other doesn't.

Take a look at some of the things you can do to help promote more frequent communication with your spouse and how to make that the norm.

Disagreements are inevitable.  You both have to expect this.  Disney movies are not real.

What you say will be heard.  It's not going to change into better or worse language.  But you may yourself add an interpretation to that language.  Don't say "so you're saying I'm a terrible spouse" unless you heard that said.

Clarify.  This helps you to seek understanding and it allows your partner to hear what they said.  Don't read into it, repeat it back.  That will give them an opportunity to say it differently.  They may be struggling to get their point across.

Ask your spouse if they are in a place to hear you.  Announce your desire to communicate with your spouse on your perspective.  Don't assume they're ready.
