Improve Communication & Relationships By Stating Your Needs! by Dr. Christina Hibbert

One of the best things we can do to improve our communication and relationships is to clearly state our needs. 

  • First, let go of the idea that the other person should magically "know" what you need. Even if it seems obvious, no one is a mind-reader. 
  • Second, in order to say what you need, you have to know your needs. If you're not sure about what you need in your relationships, take some time and get clear. 
  • Finally, STATE what you need, don't ASK. Say, "This is what I need. How can we make this work?" 

Following these steps will get your needs met, and that is key to a healthy relationship!
