Lockdowns on top of self-isolation have made relationships more challenging to navigate than ever before. Whether you’ve been together for ten months or ten years, there is no longer that degree of separation, which provides you with some much-needed space from your partner every day. Although it sounded ideal seven months ago, most couples are still stuck at home with one another seven-days-a-week and 24-hours-a-day, and it’s getting increasingly difficult to avoid lover’s spats.
With all this extra time spent together, it can be easy to get into arguments over the most mundane things, too – simply because, you’re around each other every moment of every day. Don’t worry – many couples are experiencing the same issues right now. If you feel like you’re having too many arguments with your significant other, there are a few ways to stop yourself from nagging and learn how to communicate more efficiently.
Start your journey to better communication with these 5 suggestions…
1. Watch your words in your exchanges with your significant other.
2. Don’t believe that your partner can read your mind.
3. Consider joining some type of couple’s therapy or course.
4. Be proactive and involve your partner in any decision-making.
5. Do whatever you’re requesting of your significant other on your own, if possible.
