Communication is an art and science at the same time but it isn't difficult to learn how to communicate well. To communicate well means to be able to tell your feelings and thoughts as they are. Only words are not enough to communicate what is in our mind and heart. When somebody has the ability to unite his words and his body language well, he will succeed in communicating what he really feel and think. In this case People will find themselves attracted to listen to this person. Relationships start from this point. Good relationships are based upon good communication. Mutual understanding creates these relationships and they become stronger as the understanding increases. Once both partners understand the hidden signs and the precise meaning of what is being said or done (e.g. keeping quiet) they will develop a healthy relationship. We usually feel good towards anyone who understands us. On the other hand we feel irritated when we communicate something and it is misunderstood. Here lies the relation between bad communication and relationships. The excitement of partnership and the euphoric love in the beginning may make the relationship cross the threshold despite of poor communication. But as time goes the need for good communication increases to grow the relationship and feed the love. Otherwise love will thin down and cracks will begin. But what to do if you have a problem of bad communication with your partner? The best thing is to ask for clarifications saying: "Darling, I don't get what you want to communicate, what do you mean? Could you explain more, please? " Be sincere in your request You should have the real intent to improve your relationship. Slowly the communication will develop. Good communication is very important to guarantee mutual understanding and thus good relationships.
