The article “Close relationship Sometimes Mask Poor Communication” In my opinion is
an excellent example of how we as couples communicate. We believe that the other person
knows us well and we expect our spouses to understand or read in between the lines certain
things we communicate to them. Since we have been together for so long, it should be too
difficult. One spouse should have a perfect understanding of what the other one is trying to relay.
It is very surprising to know that the statistics showed that strangers understand us just as equally
We went back and forth with the discussion. Until I decided I had heard enough. I then
proceeded to make my way home, I walked to my place of residence. I live approximately five
miles from my place of work. It took me about an hour and a half to arrive my house. As I
walked home, I had entertained a million thoughts in my mind, and I was so upset that I was
going to give my Son a piece of my mind. As I arrived home he was waiting on me and
explained to me that he was very sorry, that he was going to head out and pick me up, after I
hung up the phone. Then he realized that I was already upset, so even if he would’ve caught up
with me while I was walking home. I would have not gotten in his car. I would have kept on
walking to my destination. He was patient and waited until I arrived home to have a conversation
and not a heated discussion over the phone.
As we discussed the incident we both realized that we needed to communicate better. We
both agreed to make our intentions clear...
