How Crucial Is Communication For Successful Relationships

Updated: Nov 27, 2020

Communication is vital to a healthy relationship, and it is the only thing that can prevent harmful misunderstandings among people.

If people in a relationship want that relationship to function properly they need to be on the same page. No one should be feeding into misunderstandings or any type of conflict because this can cause destructive emotional distance. When we allow such weeds to grow freely in the orchids of our relationships we also allow them to push us away from one another instead of achieving a more deeply connected relationship.

Communication is something relationships simply cannot work without. Communication is simply the act of transferring information from one place, person, or group to another.

You cannot expect your partner to have the right answers if you haven’t first told them the details involved in the situation at hand. Assuming your partner already knows of something that you know of is one of the worst things you can do if you wish to maintain a healthy relationship.

If you aren’t making the effort to listen to each other and share, then discord is pending in the relationship.

Expressing our thoughts to each other is crucial. For example, if you dislike a certain behavior in your partner but never tell them that it bothers you they will not be aware of it, and you cannot expect them to be able to read your mind.

If you fail to communicate properly you will inevitably create more conflict between each other, which, if left unchecked, could ultimately lead to your separation. There are a number of communication issues that can arise when it comes to romance and acknowledging that is the first step towards talking things through with your other half.

Naturally, you will differ in approach, temperament, and other things, and that is why you need to place special emphasis on communication.

Of course oversharing can also be a bad thing as well as the inability to sit down and talk about important issues concerning your relationship. But if you fail to speak to one another when there is an obvious need for it you are risking to doom a relationship that could have otherwise brought you true happiness and fulfillment.

Having respect for each other’s differences is essential in order to make things work. Little misunderstandings can become huge problems when left unattended. As you know there are different ways of communicating, all should be utilized for the benefit of your relationships growing stronger.

That's all folks.

Hi Carrie! Congrats on building a successful relationship with your husband that you are still growing through communication. It's inspiring that after 17 years, you are still going strong. I have been married for 9 years now and still growing our communication skills too. Thanks for commenting.

My husband and I dated long-distance for most of our relationship. It taught us to communicate and has really set a good foundation for us. Although I didn't like being apart from him, that stated our relationship on the right foot. 17 years later, we are still growing our communication skills.
