Healthy communication looks different for every couple. I think the most important step when we think about how to communicate in a healthy, assertive, compassionate manner with our partners is our intention. What is the intention behind our communication? Are we looking to express our feelings? Are we looking to get something off our chest and vent? Are we looking to really listen to the other person and hear what they have to say? Are we looking to build trust after the relationship has been disrupted? Really becoming clear on what the intention behind the communication is is the most important step, and then recognizing how we actually need to make that communication happen.
