Do your discussions turn into arguments most of the time? If so, that’s a sign that you both need to work on your communication. Here are 5 reason why…

1. You are using mind reading and responding as if you know what the other person is thinking

2. You have shut down because you don’t feel safe to share your truth with your partner

3. You sweep things under the rug because you’re afraid an honest discussion will trigger your partner and you’ll get into an argument
