Five Key Tips for Communicating Better
Listen, allow your partner to say their piece, and GET CURIOUS about what they said. Be curious to learn your partner’s perspective. When and where were the times and places your partner learned this perspective?
Remember, loving is more important than agreeing.
To reduce the arguing, notice when you start to feel angry. This gives you a chance to reflect and choose an action you prefer (yelling or calming).
Check that you understood your partner’s feelings behind the words.Use your partner’s first Love Language intentionally.
Use empathy to help deepen your understanding of your partner’s feelings.
