There are occasions in a relationship when one companion (deliberately or not) says or does one thing and that impacts the opposite in a adverse or hurtful approach.
We could be triggered by this and turn out to be reactive, defensive, or passive (which causes us to close down).
When this occurs, communication can get complicated, distorted, and misunderstood. An enormous a part of efficient communication is to remain conscious—to reply, not react, and to hunt to know the opposite.
That means listening and in search of to know, and asking questions for clarification so you possibly can improve understanding.

If we focus extra on our reply, we’re not targeted and listening to the opposite individual so we gained’t actually perceive them. We are extra targeted on them needing to know us.
If you’re too involved with the connection (i.e. don’t need to harm their emotions or trigger battle) you’ll probably be extra passive or passive aggressive in your expression. The aggressive communication strategy is you win and your companion loses. The passive strategy is you lose and your companion wins. Neither the aggressive or passive communication fashion is wholesome or productive.
Thus relationship cooperation and consensus turns into an ongoing problem.

It is about in search of the win-win end result. Consensus retains in thoughts the significance of each the objective and the connection. It permits for mutual opinions and alternative ways of being by way of dialogue, negotiation, and compromise.
Consensus requires efficient and respectful communication expertise, flexibility, and openness to know the others perspective, in addition to whereas expressing your personal view.
