Do you ever just want to vent? Want to share whats going on in your mind without hearing advice or judgment? Doesn’t it feel good to talk to someone who is genuinely interested in what you’re saying? As good as it feels to be on the receiving end of your partner’s attention, it is equally if not more important to be a good listener yourself. Good communication is a two-way street; it feels incredibly rewarding to be present for your partner. So next time your partner opens up to you about their thoughts or concerns, do you best to just listen. Put down your phone, look into their eyes and get interested. But perhaps most importantly control your desire to speak, even if it really itches.
“Communication is 85% listening and 15% talking. The more you listen, the more you’ll enhance communication. Try getting out of the house, taking a long walk without cell phones, just looking into your partner’s eyes and listening to him.her. Its’s an amazing thing in a relationship when you truly feel listened to!”
