Does he misinterpret you?
Discover why you say one thing and he hears another. This may be causing a lot of unnecessary conflict in your relationship. Tips throughout the book will help you better understand why it feels like you are not always on the same page. With new insight and simple actions you are able to implement immediately, you can turn this dynamic around and feel more connected.
Does he become defensive?
When you are talking, does it feel like sometimes he becomes defensive for no good reason? Often it can be just one word in your sentence that sets him off. Mistake #7 highlights the words that can easily put him on the defense and are problematic when you are trying to be heard. A simple word swap can change the outcome of the conversation entirely.
Are your needs not getting met?
Are there days when you feel overwhelmed with all you have to accomplish, and you get frustrated that he doesn’t just jump in and help? If this scenario sounds familiar, Mistake #8 is the one you’ll want to check out. It opens your eyes to things you may not know about him and offers strategies to help you express your needs in a manner that he’ll be able to hear.
