1. To reduce misunderstandings

If you're having a conversation with your partner and you for example ask them to be more supportive, clarify what that means for you. Don't assume you have the same definition of what "support" means.

2. To feel like a team

If you want to increase your chances of feeling like a strong team & finding a middle ground despite differences, validate your partner's perspective first. Validating doesn't mean you agree with them. It means acknowledging that their experience is allowed to be real because we each perceive situations from our own lenses.

3. To de-excalate tension

Hold yourself accountable for how you're showing up in conversations. You can't control your partner but your actions can positively influence a situation.

4. To create a safe space

Listen to understand not respond. If your partner feels heard, you're creating a safe space and they're more likely to open up to you without that, your conversations will lead to dead-ends. Feeling safe and understood is fundamental if you want to build a healthy, stable relationship.

5. To acknowledge your partner

Acknowledge your partner for sharing their side of things. Acknowledgement neutralizes, defuses, deactivates and reduces the effect of jealousy and envy. Showing your partner appreciation and acknowledgement is vital to any relationship.
