Imagine a world where everyone straightforwardly expressed their wants and needs, what hurt them and what made them happy. Or just imagine a world where everyone did this in their marriages.

Instead of hiding behind sarcasm.

Or being passive agressive.

Or using the silent treatment.

Or talking without being willing to listen.

Or expecting our spouses to be mind readers?

What if we stopped playing games, put the target on the wall, say what we mean and mean what we say?

Do you find it difficult to be straightforward in your communication?

  1. OH. Yes. How I need to do this more often. Marriage is a great place to learn that in, and we have definitely gotten better over the years, but I still find myself falling into the trap of expecting others to know what I am thinking!

  2. Yes, I’m not always the best at being straightforward with what I’m feeling or what I need. For some reason I think my husband should just know, and then I realize how silly that sounds. I’ve since been more cognizant of how I communicate with him and not hesitate to be more direct.
