Some key points about communication:
- Good communication takes humility. We must let go of the need to be right and embrace doing right.
- Check what you hear. Don't assume you understand the question or the comment the first time -- take time to clarify what is behind the comment or question.
- Listen for feelings as well as facts.
- Learn to express what you desire. It gives your spouse the ability to be successful at loving you.
