"We can't communicate with each other" is probably the number one complaint of most couples' experience in a relationship.

Communicate to Build Intimacy:
Learning how to communicate about deeper concerns is an essential component to building relational trust and intimacy. When individuals in a relationship can freely express their thoughts, feelings, and desires in a non-judgmental space, they let the other partner into their inner world. When the other partner can listen and provide the necessary space for their partner, they can create intimacy even when they can't agree. Partners often get upset when the other partner disagrees. However, the key to an effective connection does not depend on the matter but rather how they share and receive information. Communication is essentially the medium to seeing, talking, and understanding each other. When couples learn how to create a bridge, they extend their hearts and make a space to feel heard, seen, and validated.
