In my last post I talked about a current struggle I'm having with listening to Monique. We have both learned and experienced the fact that listening is the primary key to great communication and intimacy...a way to express love to one another. Yet, we both still have spells when we don't listen. Hmmm...? What is that all about?
I read a great post this week by Dr. Kelly Flanagan on his UnTangled blog. The blogpost is titled; The Key to Great Comminication and a Loving Marriage: Less is More.
I really think he hits on some profound realities that we all need to consider to experience emotional health in our relationships, especially our marriages. I like the notion that "less is more". What does this mean to you? Let me know what you think after reading his blogpost...I think that maybe the nugget, "less is more" in the context of listening, might be a Marriage Mosaic nugget. What do you think?
Men, there are times when I really struggle to listen to my wife Monique. She picks up on it immediately. Can you relate? What I've been doing lately is cutting her off before she completes her thought or sentence. Yikes! This leads me into all kinds of trouble, and rightly so, as it is really frustrating to be on the other end of the cut off, just ask Monique. How do you practice quieting your mind and truly listening to your wife? The guy in the video clip below
