Why Communication Is Crucial For Long-Lasting Relationships
“Let communication be the seed that you water with honest and love. So that it may produce a happy, fulfilling, and successful relationship.”
– Stephan Labossiere
Communication is vital to a healthy relationship, and it is the only thing that can prevent harmful misunderstandings between two people.
If you and your partner want your relationship to function properly you need to be on the same page. Neither of you should be feeding into misunderstandings or any type of conflict because this can cause destructive emotional distance. When we allow such weeds to grow freely in the gardens of our relationships we also allow them to push us away from one another instead of connecting more deeply.
Communication is something relationships simply cannot work without.
You cannot expect your partner to have the right answers if you haven’t first told them the details involved in the situation at hand. Assuming your partner already knows of something that you know of is one of the worst things you can do if you wish to maintain a healthy relationship.
If you aren’t making the effort to listen to each other and share, what you have on your hands is a house of cards waiting to be blown away.
Expressing our thoughts to each other is crucial. For example, if you dislike a certain behavior in your partner but never tell them that it bothers you they will not be aware of it, and you cannot expect them to be able to read your mind.
If you fail to communicate properly you will inevitably create more conflict between each other, which, if left unchecked, could ultimately lead to your separation. There are a number of communication issues that can arise when it comes to romance and acknowledging that is the first step towards talking things through with your other half.
Naturally, you will differ in approach, temperament and other things, and that is why you need to place special emphasis on communication.
Of course oversharing can also be a bad thing as well as the inability to sit down and talk about important issues concerning your relationship. But if you fail to speak to one another when there is an obvious need for it you are risking to doom a relationship that could have otherwise brought you true happiness and fulfillment.
Respecting each other’s differences is essential in order to make things work. Little misunderstandings can become huge problems when left unattended.
