I’m guilty of not communicating enough from time to time. I shouldn’t have to call anyone out, just think about whether or not you do communicate enough. Think about whether or not you communicate at all.
Whether or not you’re in your first relationship, last, second marriage, first real friend, you can probably gauge whether or not you’re communicating well. In order to do so, you just have to be as honest as you can be with yourself. Are there things you don’t tell people? Are there things you hold back unknowingly?
When you’re in a relationship, communication can sometimes be extremely hard. I feel like people get caught up though. Look it, your partner is truly supposed to be your best friend. So why not treat him or her like they’re one of them. You probably tell your best friend everything or almost everything. Your significant other isn’t going to like hearing about the fact that you tell your best friend things that you don’t dare mention to him or her. Be respectful and honest in your relationship. Hiding things and indirectly not telling the truth isn’t the way to go. You have to subconsciously live a life where you’re always having to put in effort where it shouldn’t be put. You expend energy and “brain power” trying to hide things and refrain from saying things. It’s mentally exhausting. It’s taxing on yourself and the people around you. Just work on not doing it.
We’ve all been in situations where we thought to ourselves, “Man, I should’ve just told him or her!” I know that situation has gotten to me before. The key is to prevent that from happening. You have to think about the worst thing that could happen if you’re 100 percent honest with someone or everyone. Sometimes the truth is going to hurt. So what. Lies hurt worse and they also leave scars. The truth won’t hurt like that. Be a good communicator. In fact, be a great one. Make people come to you. Make people seek you out for advice.
