Looking to Improve Your Relationship?

What’s one small thing someone can do today or this week to improve their relationship, even a little bit?

Use “I” statements. Don’t say: “YOU are so checked out, we haven’t had a date in weeks!” Instead, say something like: “I’ve been feeling less connected lately and would love to spend a night out just the two of us.” An “I” statement can communicate anything that a “you” statement can communicate, but in a nicer way that is less likely to raise defenses and is more likely to be heard.
