Today I have another tip for how to communicate better with your partner. Ready for this one? It’s another good one.
Another word that you should not use when you are communicating is “but.” Take “but” out of all of your communications.
So if you are starting, and you say “I love you, but” or “that makes sense, but” what happens? The first part of your sentence all of the sudden means nothing, and you’re only focusing on the second part of your sentence.
So instead of “but” use the word “and.” “I love you, and this is what I’m going through.” “I love you, and this is my experience.”
Whatever your point is, get it across by taking out “but” and replacing it with “and.”
