Anyone who has read any type of advice about relationships knows there are essentially two skills one must learn to have a successful one.
- How to communicate your feelings
- How to listen to others communicate their feelings
Talk and listen…it seems simple enough. Most close and loving relationships are usually born from this simple exchange – you probably liked what the other person had to say because you were listening, and the feeling was presumably mutual. However, it is common knowledge to those working on relationships that mastering these abilities can take years of practice and be incredibly difficult.
