THAT SOCIAL MEDIA POST CAN IMPROVE YOUR RELATIONSHIP COMMUNICATION
Let’s face it effective communication with co-workers, friends and clients can be very challenging at times. Relationship communication can be even more difficult. Why is this? Overtime couples can experience emotional disharmony the longer that they are together. Life events such as one partner growing emotionally while the other one remains the same. Relationship communication can become strained with a career advancement that changes the dynamics. Concentrating on raising children and neglecting relationship communication with your partner can reduce intimacy. And, the age-old issue of financial challenges can tear a couple apart.
SHARE THOSE SOCIAL MEDIA POST WITH YOUR PARTNER
Psychoanalyst Harry Stack Sullivan developed an approach called “detailed inquiry” for couple’s therapists to use in counseling. He believes that by gathering information about all parts of a client’s life details would be revealed about who a person really is.
Making small talk on topics that you might post on social media is a good way to improve relationship communication with your partner. More research on this concept of making small talk was conducted by John Gottman and Janice Driver. They found that when married couples shared mundane or even insignificant moments, it had a great impact on the health of the relationship. The research even indicated that this style of communication can have an even bigger impact than meaningful conversations.
That bike ride when you saw an old friend that you posted on social media is a great small talk conversation idea. You may think that you know all about your partners life, but you will soon be surprised what gets shared for public consumption that your partner has no clue about.
