He just doesn't get me!
She nags all the time!
Are you frustrated because you want to be understood?
Do your attempts to resolve your issues end up in unresolved arguments?
Is your relationship on the line?
Well I have good news and bad news for you!
First the bad.
You (yes, you) and your partner have probably been doing some or all of the following:
❌ Criticising, condemning or complaining.
❌ Making judgements or interpretations about the other's behaviour.
❌ Offering unsolicited advice and solutions before empathising.
❌ Repeatedly stating what you don't like but not what you actually want.
❌ Telling the other you are hurt because of something they have said or done.
The problem with doing any of the above is that it will invariably arouse the other's ego. Your partner will instinctively want to defend themselves, which will take precedence over listening to your original concern. In the end, no one is heard and nothing is resolved.
This pattern often repeats itself until at best there's unresolved resentment within the relationship or, at worst, the relationship breaks down altogether.
But it doesn't have to be this way...
If you have a genuine desire to preserve the connection you have with your partner, here's the good news:
There is a specific way to communicate which enables you to enjoy the following benefits:
✔︎ Engage in harmonious communication
✔︎ Protect your emotional well-being
✔︎ Have your needs met
✔︎ Articulate your emotions and needs
✔︎ Connect with your partner's emotions and needs
✔︎ Ask for what you want with confidence and compassion
And the best news of all: your partner doesn't even need to know any of this. By having a genuine desire to connect with your partner and following a specific communication process, your partner will revert to their naturally compassionate nature and organically become empathic.
