As a continuation of Building Positivity in Married life Forum, let us talk about the importance of communication between couples in a marriage. If there is one thing that is most important in building or sustaining any relationship it is proper communication. In a marriage, it becomes even more important to build a strong foundation. Looking at your own marriage, do you feel that there is effective communication, have you and your spouse been able to talk freely, openly, effectively about the things bothering you? Have you conveyed your displeasure tactfully staying away from attacking, hurtful comments? Do you listen attentively, try to understand what partner says even if it is not something that you would like to hear? After an argument/ discussion do you walk away without any negative feelings? Do you feel good about having conveyed what you have to? Most of us bring emotion into picture, it becomes difficult to convey clearly what is in our minds, we tend to bring all unrelated topics, other people, and old problems into the present conversation, at the end of it the content is lost, only the tone heard. Are you facing difficulties communicating your feelings and thoughts? Do you feel misunderstood? Have you done anything to overcome or improve the way you talk to your partner? Please share with us your concerns, thoughts and solutions regarding effective communication with your partner. Great communication in marriage is a skill that we can learn. It takes practice. And it takes one of us to show the other in a relationship how to communicate effectively. Looking forward to your interactions on this topic.
