Answer Yes or No. Are you interested in protecting your relationship? If so, then this might resonate with you. A dear friend of mine recently told me that the reason he wasn't communicating with his partner was because he was trying to protect his partner. I candidly said, "Communication is the best form of protection." What is it that we're really trying to protect in our relationships? Shouldn't we allow our partners to decide what they need protecting from before we decide that for them? Is there something we're scared to confront-possibly about ourselves? How might this approach prevent us from connecting? Although communication can be difficult and complex, it's a necessity and without it, relationships often fail to thrive. The next time you think about "protecting" your partner, ask yourself, "Is there something I'm protecting myself from instead.
