The importance of positive communication in the couple
Today, caring education is emphasized and strongly recommended to young parents. The idea being that encouragement, compliments, listening and encouraging behaviors contribute to well-being, happiness and the acquisition of self-confidence. If it works for children, why should things be different in adult relationships? If our environment emphasizes the positive, we will be more motivated, have a much better chance of getting better and continue to move forward serenely. If, on the other hand, everything we hear is negative, we will most likely collapse. By telling my husband that he's not caring and that he doesn't make any effort, do you really think he's going to end up changing? There's nothing to be gained by constantly going putting your spouse down.
How to communicate positively on a daily basis
To grow or save your relationship, talking positively to your spouse is an excellent place to start. But before it becomes automatic, you have to practice!
1. Say "I love you"
We should never wait until it's too late before saying "I love you" to our loved ones, especially with our spouse. Hearing an "I love you" from time to time is flattering, it feels good, it makes the heart beat and it strengthens feelings. If you have trouble expressing your feelings, make an effort and get out of your comfort zone and the effect will be even more powerful.
2. Enjoy your reunion
After being apart, remember to hug, kiss and say hello when you see each other. These small gestures reinforce the feeling of union and can sometimes erase the worries of the day. Thanks to these small gestures, your spouse will feel more loved and desired.
3. Listen carefully
There are also times when we want to appear attentive and concerned at all costs and where we give advice after advice. Except that, sometimes, when our spouse confides his concerns to us, it's simply to have an attentive ear and not a ton of roundabout advice. It's true, if you think about it, most of the time we already know very well what we have to do, we just want to complain, confide in each other and receive support or encouragement. In short, listen and give advice only if you are asked. Active listening is a powerful communication tool in a couple.
4. Encourage and support
Encouraging your lover is very positive and can have a liberating and powerful effect, because it boosts self-confidence. Of course, it's useless to give false hopes, but to give compliments on a daily basis, to show admiration, if you look closely, it doesn't cost much and it's very constructive for the couple.
Editor's note - Spending time together
In relationships, communication is important, but we should add that it is face-to-face communication that is important. Nowadays, many disputes between couples are settled by text. Face to face discussions are the cement of the relationship and the best way to achieve this is of course to spend as much time as possible together. The expectations of your partner should not remain in the darkness and you should feel close to each other.
