Make your relationship better and Healthy by listening
Books have been written about the communication between men and women.
And especially how we differ in this ( about Venus and Mars and so on ). All well and good, but basically communication really doesn’t have to be that complicated.
Do you know why?
Men and women all want the same thing

Listening is not:
Watching someone while thinking about what you want to say.
Nodding and thinking: blah blah blah blah.
Not being open to the other person’s opinion.
Fill in yourself what the other means according to you.
Being interested in the feeling and message of the other.
Show with your body language that you are listening – a nod now and then, for example.
Let the other finish.
Show understanding and empathy.
So really listen, without distraction, but with complete attention and genuine interest in the other.
Trust each other

That’s how you do that:
Have good conversations about this together. How can you help each other to regain trust?
So stick to the solutions. For example, have you promised that you will always be available? Then pay attention to that!
