When you hear the saying that ‘communication is the key’, you may take it as a cliche, but the saying remains relevant.
Communication is one key that keeps a relationship moving smoothly, and when the people involved in a relationship do not communicate effectively, it will take a room in their relationship.
Do you know that some people have lost their relationships as a result of weak communication?
See ways you could improve your communication for a better relationship.
1. Always say “Thank you”
Saying “Thank you” to your partner is a good way to keep communication alive. In some cases, it can even trigger a talk between partners.
2. Be a good listener
When you always pay attention to your partner during conversations, you’ll make a good communicator because you’ll have areas to chip in or reply to.
A bad listener may not know when to contribute during conversations, this can make a talk boring.
3. Set out time to talk
If you and your partner are working class and have no time for talks at home, you two should set out time to have conversations.
You can have a date, take a stroll together, or special dinner in your home.
4. Take note of words you use in a relationship
When having a conversation, reduce the focus you put on yourself. Avoid words that are too personalized such as “I”, “me”… Focus on your partner to show attention. Use words like “you” that show the acknowledgment big a second person.
5. Spend time with friends outside your relationship
Spending time with friends can help you improve your communication skills. When you are out with friends, you tend to loosen out and speak more.
