Talk (and listen!)

I was contacted by a journalist for a national magazine recently, asking me to comment on relationships following a recent celebrity break up.

Obviously I made no comment on the private life of the couple involved; however, I was also asked for my views on what made relationships work. My answer was immediate- good communication.

Talking, and even more importantly listening, to each other is crucial in any relationship you want to work well. Personal or professional, if communication gets skewed or misinterpreted the relationship suffers.

One of the most damaging acts in any relationship is to withhold communication. Not talking to someone you are angry or upset with does nothing long term to right the situation and is a passively aggressive act.

Although of course, sometimes holding one’s tongue on occasion can be a saving grace within a relationship!

What do you think?
