Yes, communication can immediately unite or separate a couple. Such is the power of the word and what is generated on one side and on the other that it is essential to pay attention to it. There are experts who even assure that communication is what allows relationships to last over time. But for that to happen, communication must be in a concrete way.
How to create good communication as a couple?
Just as each couple has their own rules of coexistence with money management, routines, etc., they also have it with the language they use. Each couple generates their own style and way of communicating. And much of the success of that language is in everyday life, in how concrete matters, desires, intentions are carried out.
That is what eventually makes empathy appear. Empathy generates the ability to support each other. It is feeling that if one is happy the other will be too. Thanks to this, the couple achieves that union, feeling valued later and that intimacy is generated.
Taking time and moments to talk about a specific topic, knowing what the other person thinks, listening, expressing the other’s opinion, are some of the actions that can be carried out to generate good communication as a couple.
Can communication separate couples?
Yes, when all of the above is not generated, that is when problems and errors appear in the general communication of couples. Even when you feel like you talk often, that’s not good communication.
One of the usual mistakes is to expect the partner to read our mind, that it is not necessary to communicate certain things because they will realize it. It is the same with the fact of guessing certain matters. All this leads to time being lost, a feeling of frustration at times and mistrust appearing.
Added to the above is the fact that sometimes the word is given up and we do not get to express what we really think.
All this will cause the couple to separate and problems will appear in all the surroundings, even in bed.
There is no doubt that communication has the power to unite or separate couples. Learning to use it and forging it day by day will be the key to a healthy and lasting relationship.
