Learning how to communicate is important for all of our relationships, especially with our partners. When we state our needs in a way that can be clearly understood, there is a higher likelihood of our needs being met. Fine tuning our communication skills can enhance our relationships. Learning how to overcome unproductive patterns of communication and interaction can help to move beyond unresolved relationship issues.
One of the biggest problems in marriage and relationships is poor communication. There can often be quite a lot of emotional history and baggage. Both people have individual thoughts, feelings and needs that can cloud situations, so it’s easy to miss each other's point. It’s important to understand distinct communication styles and how they can hinder or help our ability to connect with each other.
