Difference Of Opinion

Being in a relationship can be one of the best things that could ever have happened to you. On the flip side of that, they can have some of the worst moments in your entire life. Everyone has had that relationship that they thought was going to last forever only to find out that the person they were with wasn’t thinking in the same terms as they were. But time moves on and you find someone else that feels like they could be with you forever and the cycle continues until you are old enough and mature enough to realize what it takes to make a relationship last.
One of the things that will help you in keeping your relationship strong is in the communication that you have between you and your partner. Most relationships fall apart because one, or both, of the participants aren’t communicating in an effective manner with the other one. You have to understand that if something is bothering you about your partner or relationship, in general, the only way it’s going to get fixed is if the two of you sit down and talk about it. That means actual talking, and not yelling defensively at each other.
You have to be able to listen and comprehend what your partner is saying back to you as well. When one person blames the other for everything that is going wrong in their life, then that person is going to become highly defensive in nature. No one likes to be attacked, even verbally, so that means you have to keep the conversation from getting to that point. You should also refrain from being overly detailed about what you think is wrong with the relationship. Going into great detail about something like that will only push your partner further away from you.
If you are the one that is being spoken to about your relationship, you need to be able to sit there and listen to what is being said rather than jumping the gun and immediately flying into defense mode. This is how most arguments get started in relationships and, once that has happened, there is a divide that grows between the two of you. Things will get heated and people will start saying things that they would never actually say even if they were thinking it in their heads.
Communication is a very important part of being in a relationship and it relies on both you and your partner to keep the lines open. Unless the two of you are deaf and mute, there is no reason why you can’t speak freely regarding how you feel about things. Having a difference of opinion is what being an individual is all about, but sharing that difference of opinion in a way that doesn’t upset the person you plan on spending the rest of your life with can be difficult at times. Just remember that you have to give them the same respect when they have a difference of opinion with you as well.
