Understanding Your Partner’s Point of View

To become more empathic by strengthening your listening skills

You should know, if you grew up in a home where everyone frequently argued and no one seemed to listen to one another, you might be prone thinking you always have to be right in your relationship. However, sometimes couples argue about who’s right or wrong, as if there is only one way of approaching a problem or issue. In fact, it’s normal to have different opinions and reactions to events and experiences in your life. This can be a wonderful, lively part of a healthy relationship—sharing one’s point of view and learning about another’s.

If you’re the type of person who gets defensive or critical or always has to be “right,” hearing and understanding your partner’s different point of view can be challenging. You don’t have to agree with everything your partner says or believes, but it would be helpful to learn some new skills for listening without judgment and letting your partner know you hear them. Your relationship can grow and thrive as a result.
