Tips

Communicate With Your Partner

Icon_tip_4

Have you lost touch emotionally with your spouse or partner after years of raising children and putting their needs first? Now that one or more of your kids has left the nest, start a new chapter in your relationship by reconnecting.

The best way to get closer to your partner is through good communication. Focus your discussions on each other or your interests and forget about the kids for a while! Ease into communicating by writing a love note telling your partner what you love about him or her. Or do something together that creates space for conversation, such as going to dinner, hiking, going for a drive or even gardening. Share your hopes and dreams for the future and for the marriage. Put on “your song” and hold each other, dance and rediscover what it feels like to be a couple again, just the two of you. Use the new silence to build bridges, not walls.

For single parents, now is a great time to focus on your own hopes and dreams for the future. You might also start to consider dating again, if you haven’t already done so.

My husband encouraged us to come out of our shell and tell the world about the man behind the medicine that brought us back together after 7 years of separation. He was so astonished by the amazing spell by Dr. Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) that reunited our undying love for each other that proved we are sole mate. There has been a barrier between us, we regularly disagrees with each other, argue over unnecessary things and fight almost every week when we were still unmarried. We eventually separated for some months due unsolvable issues before he moved to Italy for 4 years.
Though it might sound impossible to still get hold of your crush for that period of time without any means of communication. I always felt he took my heart away with him because I could not fall in love again and I could not stop thinking about him but I can not be with him. Doc Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) proved that nothing relating to love issues is impossible for him; doctor also proved that true love does not die after broking the barriers between us. Days after the spell, he returned unexpectedly to take me along with him. My happiest moment is seeing us live happily for a year without issues before getting married. We are still astonished by the good spiritual work that brought us together forever.
