Saying what you feel and asking for what you want with your partners can often feel can be very difficult. But why is that? And even when you gather the courage and patience to do so, they still don’t understand. Kimberly shares that this is common, “What seems to be one of the most difficult conversations for a man and or woman to have in their relationship or in dating is saying how we feel and communicating when we have a need.”

1️⃣ Make sure before having a conversation with your partner, they are in the present and free of distractions
2️⃣ When addressing an issue, focus on the behavior. Rather than blaming or pointing at your partner, find the behavior that is causing this conversation to happen.
3️⃣ Ask for what you want, rather than what you don’t want. After sharing your feelings on how you feel, go that extra step further to suggest a solution.
