This morning, my husband & I had an interesting chat about something he’s not very keen on. I could tell that something was bothering him & I’m super grateful that we could constructively talk through his dissatisfaction. Our conversation pointed out to me a few key points for good communication:
*listen because sometimes the other person may just need to let off some steam or emotions
*ask questions endeavoring to understand & not get the upper hand or to prove a point
*intimacy is directly proportional to honesty when genuine love is present
*do your best to be affirming even if you don’t feel like it

What are some more helpful ideas for constructive communication?

  1. *intimacy is directly proportional to honesty when genuine love is present – well said!

    Lack of communication is often a symptom of insecurity. Insecurity is a symptom of selfishness. The more worried one is about their image and other’s opinions, the more insecure they become. Marriage is two people doing life together, each one selflessly devoted to the happiness and well-being of the other.

    Good communication is contingent upon honesty. Honesty creates security which opens the door for more communication, leading to greater intimacy.

  2. Just back to basics
    Prepare for the DAY – no matter what may arise
    Get with Jesus 9Noon3 – try to make it a routine
    Keep a sense of Humor and Try to Laugh at Yourself. Smile
