Learn to communicate

You'll hear the phrase 'communication is key' a lot in life because it's true. No matter how much you might not want to admit it, talking about your issues with your partner is one of the only ways forward - even if you can't always fix them. 

Denise says: "Usually one partner deals with the facts and the other deals with the feelings and the two are kept frustratingly separate."

Learning how to voice these things and share them with your partner will make your relationship a whole lot more balanced and prevent lingering resentments and misunderstandings. 

As well as this Denise says: "Research shows that the optimum way to communicate is to offer five positives for each negative."

So next time there is an issue with your partner try to make sure that you come at it with the back up of a positive.
