Create Open Communication
After evaluating your relationship needs in the previous assignment, begin
building stronger communication in your close relationships.
Discuss your expectations with your partner, friend, or family member. Be
open and curious, not accusatory.
Remember, if the person can’t fulfill a certain need, that’s okay! It’s important
to be honest and on the same page about your needs in a relationship so you
can fulfill a lacking need elsewhere.
If you’re feeling hesitant, start small – it can be as easy as communicating
your need for touch by asking for more hugs!
