Communication in relationships is very important and has to be clear and understanding. We need to communicate clearly to avoid misunderstandings that may cause hurt, anger, resentment, or confusion. Every relationship has some difficult times and must be resolved rather than moving from each other. Communication and resolving misunderstandings are not always easy but these kinds of challenges push us to work as a team. The most important way is to resolve your difficulties healthily. That means clear communication, telling your partner what they did to hurt you, how you feel and to be avoided in the future.

Your partner has to be also your best friend, it’s important to figure out how to best communicate with each other and understand. A healthy intimate relationship requires more than just superficial conversation. Meet each other on a deeper level so can understand each other behaviour. Also, to have this deep level of communication with someone require trust.

To learn to communicate with your partner you have to know what they love to do, what kind of gift they love to receive, what is quality time for them, what physical touch, and how they show love and has to be learned from both sides.

Friendship before the relationship is the foundation of healthy intimacy. Spending time together, know and enjoy each other, and communicating in a relaxing way. Build this friendship bond strongly so that you can feel safe and trusted.

Active listening is a skill in which you pay close attention to what your partner has to say. It is good to ask your partner what they think if you should improve your communication skills, or slow down and be more present in communication.

If you have a stressful day, it’s important to share it with your partner. They need to know why you behave in that certain way and how you cope with stress and what kind of support you need.

Be open and honest and communicate clearly about your needs and feeling with each other. Walking away is a temporary solution and never brings clarity and resolves the problem. Learn how to fix things in your life rather than “throw” them away.
