Open, safe communication is the cornerstone to a great relationship. You two need to be free to speak to each other in a way that isn’t damaging, and you need to have trust that what you share isn’t going to become a fight. And if you do fight, you need to be certain that once things calm down, you’ll talk about it until you both feel better.
Determining When a Couple Needs Communication Help
There are points in your relationship when you may be fighting or arguing, but when it’s all over you both feel better, and you feel free to continue showing and accepting love. Then there are other points in a relationship when you feel like you’re always walking on eggshells, and you would rather avoid your partner than face your problems.
- Do you use the words “always” or “never” often?
- Do you have fights with your partner in your head before they happen?
- Are you afraid to tell your partner what’s on your mind?
- Do you think your partner doesn’t value your opinion or thoughts?
- Are you having fun conversations at all?
It can be hard to identify when couples have reached the point where the communication has broken down because it’s not about fighting. Indeed, some couples that could benefit from communication help aren’t fighting at all. But when communication between you has turned unhealthy, and there are fewer times when the two of you can talk about your relationship, it may be time to get communication help through couples counselling.
