How To Get The Love You Deserve In Your Relationship
Are you getting the love you want and deserve? If so, good for you. If not, why not? Here’s what you can do to get the love you deserve in your relationship NOW.
- Put yourself in the ‘shoes’ of your significant other. Ask yourself, what is important to them? What do they need? How can you encourage them? You can build connection and priority in your relationship by focusing on 3 thoughtful gestures you can do today. Many times we focus on what WE need or want, or what is missing to US. The best way to get your partner to be interested in meeting your needs is to be a student of theirs.
- How well do you listen? Most of us kinda suck at it. We may feel we’ve heard it before, maybe we really disagree, or maybe we’re just bored. We respond most commonly in one of two ways:
1. Disengaging; also called stonewalling. This means to shut down or to tune out. We give up on even trying to listen at all.
2. Attempts at persuasion; we hear something we disagree with, and begin immediately arguing our perspective, or we at least focus what we will say next rather than hearing the other’s perspective. Even though we are still Acceptance, or lack thereof, is often times the cause of frustration, though technically engaged, we are not really listening.
If we are not paying attention, our communication dynamic can easily into a rut. Stonewalling, ignoring present conflicts, or returning to the same recurring arguments again and again will become the pattern.
