Promoting healthy communication in a relationship – What are the tricks?

Have you been recently noticing lack of communication between you two? Do you lately find it tough to communicate about your feelings of love and longing? Whenever you start speaking about your feelings, do you find your partner running away from you? As per recent research, it has been found that speaking about your feelings, whether about love or anger, is not just the best way of communicating but it is also the best way in which you can maintain a healthy relation. E-counseling.com provides an overview on how to communicate in an alternative way. That said, here are few steps that you can personally take, without the help or guidance from a therapist.

  • Pick out the best time to interact

If there is an issue that is bothering both of you, you have to find out the right time when it should be the best for both of you to converse with each other. Make sure you choose a time when both you and your partner are not distracted or stressed or in a hurry. Don’t schedule a time during that part of the day when both of you remain too busy with other household or office chores.

 

  • Face-to-face communication is the best form

If you prefer to share things in writing, you shouldn’t do the same with serious issues like the one that you’re going through. Letters, text messages and mails can often be misinterpreted unless what you say is said from your won mouth. In case you find it troublesome to collect all that you want to say, make sure you write them down so that you can at least read them aloud to your partner.

 

  • Be honest and real about what you say

It is always true that the truth hurts but whenever you’re discussing such things with your partner, don’t lie as lies will worsen the situation. Be honest as honesty is the key to maintaining a healthy relationship. You can never be perfect always and if you had made a mistake, apologize as you’ll feel better and this will also help in strengthening your relationship.

 

  • Be a good listener

Last, but not the least, you should definitely be a good listener and listen to what your partner is saying. This is the best way in which you can show him how much you respect his feelings despite what has happened between you two.

So, now that you know the ways in which you can maintain a good relationship, invest your time and effort in rejuvenating the spark between you two.
