What would happen if we just quietly listened to our partner’s needs instead of responding by being defensive? Being gentle doesn’t mean we have to be a door mat, You can be gentle while getting respect and being respectful. But showing your gentle side during an argument can do a lot more. Gentleness opens you up to listening better, by actually hearing what your partner is trying to communicate to you. By gently talking with your partner, you open up a gateway of communication so that Your partner can actually hear your concerns and hurt.
It’s okay to be gentle, it’s okay to show your gentle side. Who knows what doors it will open for you.
Think about the way your parents use to argue, how our parents fight actually affects us. We learn from them how to be. How is what they taught you affecting your relationships today? If it’s negative, isn’t it time to learn new ways of communication and reacting? Does these old styles actually help you in a positive manner? Do they help others?
Really reflect honestly with yourself today.
To your Love, Happiness & Success
