No matter how long you have been together, your relationship can still suffer if you don’t know how to communicate properly. In other words, if you don’t exert effort to improve your communication skills, your partner can end up firing back insults, retreating from the situation, or even emotionally detaching themselves from you.
In any relationship, conflicts are inevitable. At one point or another, it is likely that you’d disagree on something. You might not be aware of it but how you communicate can help determine if you get to resolve your issues or if it will fester and ruin the relationship for good.
