How to get your partner to open up to you
Having great communication is one of the most important skills a couple can have and plays a key part in having a strong loving relationship.
It’s common for one person in a relationship withdraws during the conflict, which will increase the frustration and loneliness of the other partner. When you add the separation of FIFO to a relationship, working through a common issue can become harder for the couples. Often leaving them feeling like everything is on hold and/or living in hope that the next time they are together will be better.
If the couple continues this style of communication it will turn into an unhealthy pattern. Which will eventually, lead to one or both giving up on trying to keep the connection alive. When this happens the couple will have a very serious problem. Because relationships fail when people stop believing that their partner can be who they want or need them to be.
In this video, I’ll share 3 tips on how to get your withdrawn partner to open up.
Sometimes, no matter how gentle you are with your partner, they will still shut down, avoid and defend. I often see this happen when the negative cycle of FIFO creeps in and takes over the relationship.
When couples continue to live in hope that the next time will be better or avoid dealing with problems this will keep the negative, hurtful patterns alive. And if a couple waits too long to get help this can destroy their trust in each other and their commitment to the relationship.
