At Couple Counselling Success one of the areas of areas we specialise in is communication skills. Not only how you speak to each other but how you communicate in many different areas of your life.
On Friday last week when I was at the hairdressers and the women next me to speaking to her hairdresser about her husband.
Her husband was in a band, with other men. They are singer song writers. They do not have a record deal - they do it for the love and enjoyment of it - they meet once a week to perform, write and practise. And as I guess also for male bonding.
However she was not happy about this. "He looks pathetic." "They are too old to be doing this." "The look stupid up on stage - they are in their 40s!" "He needs to grow up" and so on.
To be honest I was shocked - that any person could speak about their partner like that. I wondered what their communication was like at home, if she was so free to put down her husband in front of others what does she say to directly to her husband and how does he respond?
A relationship is about supporting each other and also doing things that makes us feel alive.
Support each other and encourage each other to do things which make you both feel alive - together and separately.
This will make your relationship more successful, and your experience of life much more joyful.
So be mindful how you communicating about your partner to others. If there is something bothering or upsetting you - have an honest conversation with your partner directly and not by putting them down to others.
