When we have an intimate partner, communicating to each other openly and clearly helps our connection strengthen.
We want to make life wonderful for each other so we need to to talk about how we can do this. We want to give to each other from our hearts so it is important that we share and understand how each other feels. We need to be able to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ to each other as part of our moment to moment communication. If we want to deepen our connection with our partner we need to practice clear communication and be open to truly listen to each other from our hearts.
