Self Reflection On Relationships

“The horizon leans forward", Offering you space to place new steps of change.”

-Maya Angelou

Feeling validated in your own story is one of the most important elements of healing.

Do you find yourself bickering with your partner more and more often? Or perhaps you're struggling to navigate tricky conversations with family or coworkers.

If you're looking for ways to improve your communication skills, you've come to the right place. Everything from politics to prose can be solved with better communication.

Forging better bonds is not as complicated as you might think- sometimes it's even as simple as a well-timed joke.

But if you're feeling lost, I have been seeing couples over the past 23 years..

"The first step is always increasing self-awareness.

"We have to know our own triggers, our own hot buttons, in order to not be pulled into crazy-making arguments and circular conversations.

Do you find yourself bickering with your partner? Or perhaps you need pointers on navigating tricky conversations with family or coworkers. Everything from politics to prose to solve your most pressing communication.

Forging better bonds is not as complicated as you might think- sometimes it’s even as simple as a well-timed joke.

When it comes to relationships, communication is key. Whether you're bickering with your partner or trying to navigate a tricky conversation with a family member or coworker, effective communication is essential.

And while it might seem complicated, it doesn't have to be. Sometimes, the solution is as simple as a well-timed joke.

Humor can help diffuse tension and lighten the mood, making difficult conversations more bearable - even fun.

Everything from books on politics to guides on prose can offer valuable insight. So next time you're stuck in a communication rut, remember a couple should ask each other questions and listen to the answers without personalizing too quickly. Not, “Why are you doing this to me?” but “Let me understand why you believe this or want that.”

Ask questions, for example…

👉What does this really mean for you?

One of the hardest things about relationships is dealing with conflict. It can be difficult to stay calm and constructive when you're feeling upset, especially if the conflict triggers painful memories from the past.

When this happens, it's easy to respond in a way that is out of proportion to the situation. This is often referred to as a "50-cent response to a 10-cent stimulus."

If you find yourself in this situation, there are three words that can be important to remember:

"I love you." Maybe you are right, but remind yourself of your partner's good qualities and your shared commitment. This can help you to approach the conflict with patience and understanding.

Break the cycle of cutting each other’s throats.
