Listening and validating feelings
This can happen, for example, when you drive a point home beyond what is necessary, which compels your partner to shut down and stop listening even when the intention to hear you is there.
You should have to communicate something only once or twice for it to be heard.
Good is not intended to be a substitute for professional advice, diagnosis, medical treatment, or therapy.
Always seek the advice of your physician or qualified mental health provider with any questions you may have regarding any mental health symptom or medical condition.
There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to share your thoughts or feelings with your partner only to experience deflection or defensiveness.
