Is communication a struggle in your marriage? On today’s episode we will help you overcome those communication dead ends. You know the conversations and arguments you get into that lead to absolutely nowhere?
Join us for part one in our 3-part Communication Killers & Their Kryptonite series as we talk about 3 dead ends to communication. But don’t worry, we won’t leave you hanging, we’ve got the kryptonite to help take away their power and get your communication skills up to speed!
Learn how to avoid these three communication dead ends:
1. Not communicating at all. This doesn’t help your marriage and gets you absolutely not where fast. Instead of sweeping problems under the rug, try facing them head on. You’ll either become aware you have a communication problem that needs to be addressed, or you’ll actually find resolution. Either way it’s a win!
2. Stop withholding communication until you erupt. This way only breeds resentment towards your spouse. When an issue arises, find the right timing, have the right attitude and intention and share what’s bothering you.
3. Quit asking backwards. In other words, instead of complaining and hoping your spouse gets it, try actually asking for what you need or want. Sure, there’s risk of rejection involved in that, but it doesn’t automatically out your spouse in a defensive position.
Communication is key in marriage and you want to learn how to have it well!
