Communicate And Listen Well

Communicate And Listen Well
  • Give detailed records of what all happens to you, communicating everything to your partner. Make it comprehensive and thorough.
  • Active listening is another overlooked aspect of communication, which we assume is only about blabbering. Listening gives us clues to what we should be doing, but we are too full of our own thoughts to give an ear to our partner.
  • Long-distance communication happens mostly on the phone, email, video calls, or text messaging. All the more reason to listen well as there is less body language and facial expressions involved.

Do romantic stuff like sending a personal letter, or some flowers when the time is right. It is also a good idea to keep negative feelings like jealousy outside of the relationship.

Romance loses its power when you keep a score of what all you have given and received. This is not a game.

Keep apologizing for all your mistakes. Find new, creative ways to apologize and mean it. Say sorry even if you think you are right.

It is good to ask yourself how much you love your partner, and what life would look like without this person in it. This exercise snaps you back to reality if your love is real.

IDEAS

Using a productivity system

The idea of a productivity system is to organize the stuff you need to do.

There are many systems out there. But you may have no idea which system to pick. You may start well, but the system you've chosen may begin to choke you because it doesn't fit quite right. Eventually, you may slack off and abandon it. These problems can be avoided if you understand the reason behind the system and its limitations.

Self-love

It seems that recently the idea of 'self' as in 'self-love', 'self-made', 'self-care' etc. has been gaining more and more importance especially in the Western culture.

While the self can be perceived as both an internal and external entity connected to the outside world, one should be aware of the fact that the we learn to love ourselves only by being loved by others and vice versa.
