Couples Challenge: Sit Down And Talk

Posted by in Black Love Advice

This month’s challenge is not about political opinions or weather forecasts. You simply need to pull out the heavy artillery – plain and relationship talk. You both need to find some quiet time in the evening, sit back and initiate a conversation concerning the things you both find annoying, disturbing, frightening or damaging within your relationship.

No need to hide your true thoughts – just let it all out in the open. This is not a fighting-challenge, so use a cool tone in your voice and remember to express all of your issues and concerns, so you can start to fix them. There should be no name calling, no finger pointing, no yelling, and try not to take what’s said during this discussion to a personal level. The goal is not to argue but to figure out what you both can do to make your relationship better.
