It is amazing how valuable communication can be in a new relationship. You have to be able to let go of your jaded views from past failed relationships, and realize this new person is not your past.
I am far from perfect, and so is David. But the one thing we seem to have gotten very good at, is communication. Especially about our fears. We have both had a situation early in our relationship, where we questioned the actions of the other, due to our experiences with ex’s.
But what has kept these things from turning into huge fights or misunderstandings, is that we ask what we are afraid to ask. We get answers before jumping to the wrong conclusions.
This is new territory for me. I have never had a man willing to be so open to talking about important issues in our relationship. I enjoy it very much. We don’t spend 100% of our time discussing the serious things…we do have fun, sometimes being totally silly, other times being romantic. But just knowing, that the option is there to bring up something we feel is important to us, is a huge thing.
How are your communication skills? Have you been honest with yourself about how you deal with others? It is the hardest thing you can do…looking in the mirror and being honest about what you see in yourself.
Be blessed and communicate it!
