Often times we go around in silence feeling disappointed that our needs aren’t being met by our partner. Or we fight about silly things that never really get to the heart of the matter. Find a time when you can tell your partner what you need in your adult voice so that they can really hear and understand what you need. Be authentic. Your partner is not a “mind reader” even though you may think that they “should” be.
Below are 11 things that you may want and need from your partner:
3. Attention (focus)
“When a persons needs aren’t being met it begins to chip away at the relationship”.
Talk to one another. Don’t be afraid to ask for something. You’re partner can say yes or no and why not. Then you can have a discussion that will help you to understand why you partner is the way they are and what their needs are. Compassion and understanding go along way in relationships. But so does assertiveness. Ask! Tell!
Sometimes we need to learn skills to have these kinds of conversations with our partner. Perhaps some marriage and family therapy sessions could support you in expressing your needs to your partner.
