Improving Poor Communication

Relationship issues are many and varied, just as much so as different relationships themselves. However, one of the fundamental causes of relationship problems is poor communication. By building strong, clear communication between the people in a relationships many communication issues may be avoided. It's so common for problems to arise not because of a specific cause, but rather because of miscommunication.
It's an error to assume that one's partner will understand you and what you want from him or her. The only way to have clear communication is to discuss what each of you wants from the relationship and each other, as well as speaking about attitudes, likes, dislikes and expectations of both people involved in the relationship. It's always worth getting over one's fears to ensure clear communication with a person even when it means that you disagree, disagreement is natural and healthy, by allowing it to be present and acknowledging it, then it's possible to move beyond and closer to an agreement.
