Communication in relationships

April 4, 2016
How are your relationships? Are they breaking down around you, are they easy and effortless or are you actively trying to improve them? Hopefully the last two are true for you? Relationships require work, we all know this however how many of us actively participate in their improvement and in making them more easy and even effortless?
Relationships can be so tough, we can be faced with what we don’t want to hear, what we don’t want to know and most often what we don’t want to accept about ourselves. Relationships are our greatest place of growth, our greatest opportunity for progress and yet can be the most turbulent forces in our lives.
Actively embracing personal transparency is a really wonderful tool to improve your relationships. What this means is being completely transparent within yourself about your wants, your needs and your behaviours. Being open to owning your side of any conflict, and how you may have contributed enables you to begin communicating effectively.
Making time to work on and nourish your relationships is another key to their success. Do you make space and time to communicate? This is often where people get stuck. We make time to spend together doing the fun stuff and the easy stuff but do not make time to work on communication which is often where difficulties can lie. Is it time for you to finally acknowledge the big pink elephant in the room?
Learn to communicate authentically and don’t be afraid of learning together how you best communicate. This is a great place to start, even just identifying that you may need to learn to communicate better opens up the possibility for change. Learn from each other, what are your best methods of communication? Learn for yourself, are you a processor or not, do you take time to integrate and respond to communication? Also, are you both invested in the success of your relationship?
Ask yourself these questions in relation to any challenging relationships in your life. Begin to actively work on them, actively make time for communication and begin to see the miracles unfold before you…
