Marriage Communication: Allowing Your Partner to Know Who You Truly Are

How well is your marriage communication? Do you tell your partner everything that you are going through? Do you open up and let him or her in? Or do you hide and keep everything to yourself?

Don’t be afraid to let your partner know who you are and have great marriage communication. There are a lot of people in relationships who don’t really open themselves up and let their partners in.

Trust is built in relationships by being open about who you are and entrusting yourself to your partner through open and honest marriage communication.

This is something that not everybody can do, mostly because a lot of people are not truly aware of who they really are. They tend to go through life on autopilot, focusing only on things that they feel they have to do like their jobs and careers; concerning themselves mostly about the image they project to other people and how others perceive them; and talking about things and events that are happening outside them or that they really shouldn’t be concerned about. Most of them have cautious or reluctant marriage communication because they are afraid to share their thoughts and opinions, their values in life and other things that are important to them on a personal level.

Although this doesn’t necessarily destroy the trust in your relationship, it doesn’t develop it either. And most of the time, not having an open marriage communication creates marriage problems that don’t necessarily have to be there. If you find that you are in a position similar to this, take some time to reflect on yourself and try to find ways to repair your marriage communication. Discover the things that are most important to you – what you want your relationship to be, the things you believe in and the things you don’t, what values are important to you and what drives you in life.

Once you’ve figured out what these things are, share them with the people in your life that are significant to you, especially your spouse. This will not only allow him or her to get to know you on a deeper level, but it will create respect, a more powerful and effective marriage communication and develop the trust you have in each other even more because they will know exactly who you are.
