Communication means sharing of information between two or more people. In this case, we are referring to two people. Communication is quite important in the way we relate with people and most especially, our loved ones.
If you claim to love someone and cannot freely discuss or talk to and with the person, then there is a huge gulf or barrier between you both. This means you would most likely be doing things against each other’s will and constantly getting on each other’s nerve.
Since the importance of communication in a relationship cannot be overemphasized, here are 3 cogent reasons why you should prioritize communication.
1) To increase intimacy.
Intimacy isn’t just about sex, it is more than sex, it is about being so close, so connected with your partner that you know the things your partner can and can’t do. That level of intimacy can only be achieved when the communication system in the relationship has been properly explored, there is honesty, comfort, vulnerability, stability, maturity and every other thing that would keep a relationship going.
2) To avoid misunderstandings.
Several fights in a relationship occur because of misunderstandings and then the plate is filled with pride, anger and hurt all because of a simple misunderstanding. But bear this in mind, there will be no misunderstanding if there had been proper communication, so keep the communication waves open and talk about every and anything!
3) To build trust.
This is the ultimate goal for every couple, to have a solid relationship built on trust, one that can stand the test of time. Communication makes it possible for you to have just that. With communication your partner is in the loop as regards your life and choices, communication is ultimately the rock on which trust needed to sustain a good relationship is built.
If you feel you have been communicating and you’re still not getting through to you partner, bear this in mind that communication is a two way thing, you need to be able to talk as well as listen and always understand the point of view of your partner.
Don’t make it all about you.
