We love each other but don’t communicate well. Is our relationship over? Thank you.
Signed Communication issues
Dear Communication Issues:
Just because you don’t have the same communication style or way of processing life events, doesn’t mean that you can’t continue your relationship.
Some are able to say what is in their hearts easily. Others need time to process the information first before responding.
If you are the type of person who makes decisions quickly and your partner doesn’t, that can feel a little frustrating.
Once both of you are able to understand the others communication and processing style, it becomes much easier to open a conversation. The more you practice and the more you respect each others needs, the easier your conversations will become. When communicating the key is not to attach to the outcome of the conversation. In other words, don’t expect or anticipate how the conversation will go.
Love each other, hold each other able, respect your partners needs and be open to important conversations. The more you can be clarity in the conversation, the easier it gets.
