If I told you I was an introvert, you probably wouldn’t believe me..but, it’s true.
I can find myself being a little anti-social; I’d much rather prefer to get lost in my own dream world and would love texting instead of talking. Needless to say, it can be rather difficult for me to communicate sometimes.
As a kid, I can remember always wanting to keep my feelings to myself for fear of my thoughts not being appreciated. With this being the case, I never really learned how to communicate properly. With communication being a HUGE part of a healthy relationship, I now realize the need to do better.
If I’m truly going to get relationship ready, I have to be able to tackle the uncomfortable conversations (even when I don’t want to.) As women, we sometimes avoid having those tough talks for sake of “not rocking the boat.” This can hold true in romantic relationships as well as friendships. But, what I know for sure is that you’ve got to get comfortable with being uncomfortable if you really want to grow.
So, when Nikhol Jackson mentioned “lack of communication” as one of the hardest issues for her to overcome during the first few years of marriage, it really hit home. (click here to listen to the interview) I can definitely relate with being a poor communicator and since I have big dreams of being a happy wife, it’s time to tackle this issue once and for all!
