Be Receptive, Not Reactive

If you’re reactive, every complaint your partner makes feels like a threat. You instantly go into freeze-fight-or-flight mode, trying to pretend nothing happened and ignore the problem, run away or attack your better half – none of which are good responses and ultimately lead to a big communication problem.

But if you manage to stay receptive to your partner’s feelings, you’ll always find a way to talk things through.
