I don’t know why I think I’m suitable to talk about this but I will anyway haha 😂
So I was watching a video on YouTube while avoiding my never ending coursework because that’s pretty much what uni life is about… procrastinating and watching YouTube videos.
Anyways so the video was about a couple breaking up and their friend talks to them to figure out what went wrong and here’s what he said and the part I find really interesting.
He said relationships break down because we never communicate what we expect from a relationship. We go into relationships with our own expectations and expect the other person to fulfil them even though we haven’t told them what we want… what happens next? Relationships break down because you’re not happy they didn’t do what you expected.
What you need to do is communicate and tell the other person what you want. This doesn’t just apply to romantic relationships but friends and family too. Telling people what you want gives them the chance to actually be able to give you what you want. You can find out what they want too.
How does it work? Simple. Sit down with your friend/family/any other relative and speak to them. Tell them what you want and ask them what they expect. For e.g. some people like presents and gifts as expression of love whereas other see time as more precious. Find out what is important to them and shoe them love in their way.
Communication is the key to any relationships. Next time, you are get in an argument think about what the real issue is and then talk about… The problem is more than likely to be solved.
If you have any other tips let me know and I will share them with the readers.
