Today we are going to talk about Communication Barrier, a very important issue that arises between relationships. This barrier is not just curtailed to couples but it goes for namely all relationships.
It is one of the most basic and most destructive barriers. It means that either you are not communicating or your communication doesn’t go very well. And in today’s blog we are going to help you overcome this barrier if it exists or prevent from creating.
This may seem very obvious but the only way to break a communication barrier is to talk. Now talking does not mean that you start off with telling the other person about what you don’t like about him/her or whether you are happy or sad.
This is the first step and hence should not be jumped up at.
Talk about general things. Talk about your hobbies, how you spent all day, what was the best part about your day etc. If you have come back from a party or friends, talk about what you did and the fun you had. This will start cracking the walls between you.
2. There is always something to talk about
Most people complain that they do not communicate well enough because there is nothing to talk about in between them. But the same person will be seen talking hours with other friends or people.
This only means that you are not being able to break the ice between you both. Remember there is always something to talk about. So go ahead and talk.
3. Talk about your problems & Issues
Once you have cracked the walls of silence, it is now easy to talk about more serious matters of your life and relationship. If you have any problem or issue regarding your relationship talk about them to the other person.
4. Think about solutions
When you have a problem or issue always think about a solution to it. Think about how it can be fixed and how that problem can be removed out of your life.
Assisting your problem talk with a solution shows that you are not whining about a problem but you are looking for a solution.
5. Do not hesitate
Do not hesitate to talk about anything. If you are in doubt, talk about it and get it cleared. If you are confused about something, talk about it and get second opinion. If you are not sure what to do, ask them to help you with it.
6. Agree to disagree
Most communication fails because neither of the two parties are agreeing to disagree. A relationship is not always about two people who think, eat, breath and talk the same. The fun of a relationship is when two different people complete each other.
So it is not necessary that both of you agree over a matter. Open up your mind and agree to disagree.
