The Best Way to Communicate in Relationships

It is often said that actions speak louder than words, however, we should also take note that words have its own place in a relationship. What and how you speak these words is one of the ways to determine how you value a person or a person values you. And that being said, communication holds importance in a relationship.

Yet, in some cases, talking and communication can lead to arguments if not carefully dealt with including proper toning and word selection. We even tend to be more of the confrontational type which basically leads to nowhere and is an unhealthy practice. Whilst being communicative means you’re willing to work things together and play as a team.

Below Relationship Rules points out two of the best way to communicate in a relationship.

  1. Avoid using the word ‘should’ in your relationship and that is when talking with each other. Using this word implies you know better than your partner, airing dominance, and authority over him/her.
  2. Silence is never an option. We might think that keeping silent is a good idea to avoid any conflict altogether. However, this could lead to unnecessary resentments with feelings all bottled up inside and expectations not being met. It’s good to remember that you don’t have to hide what you want need/want to say, you just have to be careful with how you deliver it across.

And you may not always have that perfect talk all the time and getting into fights. Still, there are no fights that a good talk can’t fix.
