I Heart Communication
… more than romance, more than friendship, more than anything else, communication is the heart of love. When we fall in love, no matter how close we get, we remain two separate individuals. Only communication bridges the gap between us. It is impossible to avoid occasional lapses in communication. Unfortunately, when we withhold communication, we deprive ourselves, our mate, and our relationship of the only effective means of solving whatever problems we face communicate and building the intimacy we desire. When we choose not to communicate clearly and directly – and this is a choice – we are relinquishing our responsibility and control in the relationship. Carolyn N. Bushong, L.P.C.
