9 Steps To Open Up Emotionally In Your Relationship
Even though it may make you feel vulnerable at times, however, opening up and unfolding your emotions is a very important part of any relationship. Without having a deep emotional connection, you can’t really make a relationship work. Here are a few tips to help you emotionally open up to your partner.
1. Know how you feel
The first thing to do is to get in touch with your own feelings; to understand how emotionally involved are you. This will help you feel comfortable with your own self and with the emotional whirlpool that a relationship brings with it.
2. Talk about how you feel
Tell your partner how you feel about him. Sharing thoughts and feelings often brings a certain level of intimacy to relationships.
3. Probe your partner to talk
Men find it a little bit more difficult than women to talk about how they feel. You have to probe men into sharing their feelings. This will help both of you to emotionally connect with each other.
4. Learn from mistakes
Your partner may make certain emotional remarks that you don’t like and vice-versa. Learn from them and don’t repeat them.
5. Know when to talk
There is a time and place for everything, even emotions. It is very important to find the right time and place to say what you want, if you want to make a lasting emotional impact.
