Communication Consideration

In my opinion, the key to any relationship is open, honest communication. When you’re in a relationship, you have to be able to sort out problems, make agreements, set boundaries, etc, and the only way to do that is to talk to each other.

In our tech-heavy society, it’s easy to communicate with other people. We can text, email, instant message, place a good old-fashioned phone call, etc.

Misunderstandings happen in relationships when you don’t talk to each other. Don’t assume; ask. Don’t guess; seek clarification. Communication is essential.

"Dear future child
If it’s 3am and you find yourself in a world of complete despair
Please do not turn to strangers on the internet for solace as I did
Please climb onto my bed
And I will hold you until the demons sleep
If it is Thursday morning and you are too sad to move
I won’t force you
I will buy ice cream and we will watch your favourite tv show and I will remind you of your importance
If you feel as if you have no purpose
I will remind you that you were created entirely with love and every pain you feel, I feel too
When you’re sure you can’t go on anymore
I will tell you that when I was 21 I searched for peace at the bottom of a vodka bottle chased by a bottle of pain killers
But that five years later
When you were placed in my arms in the delivery room
I realised that you were why I had been holding on
Without realising it, you saved me, do you know how amazing that is?
So if you ever feel like grabbing that vodka bottle, put it down, we will get in the car and I will drive until the sky turns magenta
I will show you how the sun rises every morning to encourage you to rise too
Sweetheart I refuse to be unaware of your sufferings
As my mother was to mine."
Your mental health is my priority. (via be-fearless-brave-and-kind)

Sometimes bringing up a subject that you’re afraid to discuss with someone you love does have negative results. But to me, that’s better than not knowing for sure.

And a lot of times, bringing up that subject makes things BETTER in your relationship.

Emotional abuse is real!

Sadly, hearing these things over and over can cause lasting harm to one’s self-esteem and self-image. Personally, I’m still recovering from 14 years of this type of comment.
