Communication is key to any meaningful and lasting relationship. If you are currently in a relationship, realize whether or not you are communicating what you feel. Make sure you assess how you feel, and then talk with your partner about how you feel. Never hold anything back from your partner, for it will be repressed and get stuck in your subconscious mind. When this happens, you will act out in ways without you being aware of why you are acting out. We have to be aware of our thoughts. The more we are aware of our thoughts, the less likely they will be repressed to where we will behave in a negative way. Here are some quotes that will help you understand the power of communication.
"Once a human being has arrived on this earth, communication is the largest single factor determining what kinds of relationships he makes with others and what happens to him in the world about him."
-- Virginia Satir
"We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversation with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk."
-- Thomas Moore
"You must speak straight so that your words may go as sunlight to our hearts."
