RelationshipTips: How to communicate better

Updated on March 9, 2012

Relationships are hard and rough, they are not always easy and fun. Every couple will have a fight one way or another. No one likes to admit they fight but it will happen, I’m going to help you with communication today. Communication takes a huge part in relationships, and many people give up if they can’t communicate. If you don’t talk about your problems, it could lead to a break up or even worse...a divorce. Break ups happen more often because of miscommunication and “forgetting” about the problems. If you’re reading this article, you are already taking a huge step in your relationship. Now you are headed toward of success for better communication! I’m not saying this article will fix your problems, but it will help you in many ways. Keep reading for the steps to get the best communication with your spouse.

Step One: Express how you really feel, what you want from him/her, and what’s important for you and your life. (Patience is key in relationships) Telling your partner the truth will help with trust and they will start to understand your point of view.

Step Two: Listen to your partners feelings; treat them how you would want to be treated. When talking to your partner gives them all of your attention, they will know you care. Care in a relationship is big, if you don’t care about your partner and their feelings it’s never going to work. In the beginning of the relationship you are going to have to work through the fights. You can get over fights and move on! Do you have the patience to do so? Do you have the strength to make this relationship work? Of course you do! You’re reading this and it showed me that you are ready to fix things.

Step Three: Come to an agreement; find out how you can both be happy, even if it means compromise. Relationships are all about compromise, it’s not always about you; give the other person what they want too. If find yourself unable to compromise then try and work on it, or get out now before you hurt them. If you aren’t ready for commitment, then don’t be with someone who is.

Step Four: Always look at both sides of the situation. Don’t just stick up for your side and not worry about your spouse’s excuses. They want you to listen to them fully, and you will find the real reason of why they acted a certain way or treated you wrong. If you were in a spot and hurt your partner’s feelings wouldn’t you want them to hear you out? Yes of course, don’t give up you can fix this!

What I have started to figure out is that most miscommunication starts out with young couples in the beginning. Younger people don’t have as much as experience as a couple who has been together for five years. I do believe younger relationships can work; I have been with my high school sweetheart for a long time and we are now engaged. Things can happen and I know they will work out for you, so try your best to make things work. Thanks for reading and good luck!
