Just finished watching `Bridges of Madison County` with Clint Eastwood. It has a powerful message about how we should think about our relationship with our partner. Sometimes we let our relationship become dull and dreary, day after day we do the same things and we lose the feeling we had when our relationship was new.
Listening to our partner is the most important thing we can do, if we tune out what our partner is trying to tell us we run the risk of them finding someone that will listen to them. We have to make time in our hectic lives to spend part of each day only focused on our partner. No easy task, try to keep in mind what we want from our partner, the way we treat our partner is the way they will treat us. When we take the time to listen to what our partner is saying and not fluff it off, they will return the favor and the lines of communication will remain open, keep in touch.
