Communication Issues in Your Relationship
Communication issues are a common challenge in relationships. We learn how to communicate from our family of origin or from other relationships we’ve experienced. Sometimes the way that we communicate is not understood by our spouse or not heard in the way we intend. Communication is learned over time and communication can also be unlearned to improve the way we function in our relationships.
Ineffective communication in relationships frequently leads to arguments and distancing in relationships. Couples frequently argue about the same topics without approaching any resolution. Arguing is a natural part of being in relationship. However, arguing which leads to fall-outs and frequent misunderstandings can detrimental to the health of your relationship.
