NURTURE YOUR PARTNER

 

 The reason for nurturing your life path partner on a regular basis is to increase joy and remove resentments that snuff out love. 

 

SENSITIVE LISTENING SHOWS RESPECT

The reason for nurturing your life path partner on a regular basis is to increase joy and remove resentments that snuff out love. 

 

Truth: You can’t claim to love someone your don’t respect. Sensitive listening shows respect.

 

 

LET’S LOVE: AFFIRMING—SUPPORTING—NURTURING

What “little things” renew your love and keep resentments from recycling? Here’s what a Talk2Me© class of all men came up with…

  • Appreciate my partner by doing a date night once a month.

  • Listen more intently and be a respectful listener to tighten our bond and increase our intimacy.

  • Pay attention to whatever is said and be able to repeat and remember the topic instead of pretending that I am listening.

  • Communication: Let my partner openly know how my day is going without nagging me to talk.

  • Talk and listen with intent to catch everything said vs. complaining “I told you that last week, but once again, you’ve proven you weren’t listening.”

  • Listening is an attitude.

  • Listening shows that you dare to care.

  • Patiently listen to the problems my partner has when I’m away at work or traveling like I’m right there in the room.

  • Show compassion about complaints such as “You don’t take me anywhere nice anymore!” instead of blaming the complainer.

  • Freely give simple “thank you” acknowledgments.
