Communication in Relationships

Screen Shot 2015-06-09 at 8.19.11 AMThere is no perfect communication, just as much as there are no perfect relationships. Together you need make the communication you share as effective as you possibly can. Effective communication happens not just when we talk, but when actual conversations take place. Many people talk and think they are having a conversation, when in reality a meaningful conversation is more about listening than it is about talking.The art of conversation is finding out what is being said and engaging in a meaningful and interesting way.

Be honest and find real meaningful things to say, don’t just flatter. Although flattery sounds nice, it is very superficial and will leave your partner wondering why you said what you did. They would rather hear how you really feel about them, and what you find special about them, as opposed to you telling them what the mirror has told them all along. Being real will create a lot more depth in your relationship.

This snippet comes from my first book titled 5 Night Plan – A guide to strong and grounded relationships.
