Relationship difficulties often result when communication is poor or when different styles of communication exist.? The demands of daily life or changes e.g. a new baby, can greatly reduce the time a couple has for communicating their needs and changing expectations.? The result is miscommunication, anxiety and resentment.
Personality differences might also contribute where e.g. extroverts externally process their thoughts and ideas whereas introverts process them internally.? In hearing the extroverted partner, the introvert becomes confused by their seeming lack of focus, beliefs or intentions.
If you are experiencing relationship difficulties, you can learn better ways to communicate, which will enrich your relationship whilst valuing your respective differences.
