Relationship Communication - Remaining in the Place of LoveAuthor: Colin Martin
As the years go by in a long term relationship, it can be difficult to communicate as if your in love. I know you are still in love but the ego, always wanting to be heard, can easily rear it's ugly head and make it so hard to be centered. Communication on a balanced level is one of the most important factors in keeping a relationship long term. It's all too simple to get caught up in your world...one where it seems as if everything is going wrong and no one understands. Maybe your significant other doesn't fully understand, but expressing your ability to let them in and keep them in creates bonding.
When typical fights break out what do you really hear? It's not just complaints about who left the toilet seat down, dirty socks left around the house or who didn't take out the garbage. What you will hear behind those words is a cry for attention. "Listen to me...I still matter. I'm still me." When you realize the intention of most relationship arguments, it's easy to take a step back and include your lover in your communication. In a long term relationship, you can lose your identity very quickly. When both lovers say "I hear you" the balance of communication takes place.
Most relationship articles will tell you that listening is the most important part of communication. But beyond just listening, an acknowledgment has to take place. The person you love so dear is crying for attention, not just from you...remember you are the one who pays the most attention to her, but from the world. Bonding the strength of a long term commitment means to create a team. One that sets you apart from the rest of the world. One that tells your lover that you are not only "there for them," but there for each other. We need to know that are partner has our back, understands the things we feel and knows wholeheartedly that we are an inseparable team.
It's easy to get up in the little things. Seeing the big picture takes a little more discipline. But the payoff is huge! Can you hear the words of your partner and what they are really saying? Of course you can...that's why you love them.

(Note regarding most recent post- I write this blog to help women in their relationships. Some articles I write myself and some articles I do share from other authors. I add this note to the end of all my posts now because I received an email from a reader stating that I "steal" content. I struggled a lot of life struggles and a lot of relationship struggles. I read a lot and I write a lot. I have learned a bunch from books and the internet. The internet is made to share information. When I read an article that I enjoy or one that has helped me in an emotional way, I share it on this blog; however, I ALWAYS give credit to the author. I don't claim to have wrote it myself. I give the author credit for the time they invested in writing the article. I share their article and give them full credit for that article. I just share their articles to save people time from searching for solutions and they took the time to write those articles for them to be shared. Your time is valuable. I am just trying to help people avoid the obstacles that I have already overcome. I apologize if anyone thinks that I am "stealing" other's glory. Again, the author of the articles that I post are always recognized.)
