Pillar 3: Bonding And Cementing Your Alliance

Make myself understoodHow To Make Myself Understood

Effective communication is a powerful tool for building and strengthening the bond with your partner. It allows you to express your thoughts, feelings, and desires in a way that fosters connection and answers the question, “How do I make myself understood?”

In this article, we will explore how effective communication can serve as a means of bonding and cementing your alliance with your partner. We will delve into the importance of observing behaviors and responses, understanding mutual benefits, recognizing shared values and love languages, and finding the right words to convey your message.

I refer to your intimate relationship as an alliance because when it is working correctly, it brings you together for mutual support, trust, and a shared commitment to navigate life’s challenges so that you can achieve common goals together.

Values & Love Language:

One crucial aspect of effective communication is the ability to observe your partner’s behaviors and responses. By keenly observing how your partner acts and reacts, you can gain valuable insights into their values and love language.

Understanding your partner’s values allows you to align your communication in a way that resonates with their core beliefs and priorities. For example, if you notice that your partner values quality time spent together, you can focus on planning activities that create meaningful moments of connection.

Similarly, identifying your partner’s love language—whether it be words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, or physical touch—empowers you to communicate in a manner that speaks directly to their emotional needs.

By expressing your love and affection in their preferred love language and using their values, you strengthen the bond and deepen your connection. They begin to feel like you understand them and that opens the door to their own understanding.

Understanding How What You Want Benefits Him (Pleasure):

When discussing what you want, it is essential to highlight how your desire can benefit your partner. When you can clearly articulate how your needs and desires align with their well-being and pleasure, it creates a sense of unity and shared interests.

By emphasizing the positive impact and pleasure that fulfilling your desires can bring to your partner’s life, you foster a sense of partnership and mutual satisfaction. This naturally draws them towards what you are asking them for.

For instance, if you express a desire to go on a weekend getaway together, you can emphasize how the experience would create an opportunity for quality time, relaxation, and rejuvenation for both of you. By linking your desires to the pleasure and happiness they can bring to your partner, you strengthen the bond and create a shared sense of fulfillment.

Why Are You So Adamant That He Does It With You? (Pain):

It is crucial to communicate the reasons you insist on certain actions or changes. By expressing your emotions and the impact a particular issue has on you, you allow your partner to understand the significance and urgency of the matter. Addressing issues or concerns causing pain or discomfort within the relationship gives motivation for your partner to do something about it.

For instance, if you are adamant about attending couple’s therapy, you can explain to your partner how the pain or challenges you are experiencing in the relationship are affecting your emotional well-being. By communicating your feelings and the potential benefits of therapy, you open up a dialogue that encourages empathy, understanding, and a joint commitment to finding a resolution.

Figuring Out the Words That He Understands:

Effective communication requires finding the right words and phrases that resonate with your partner. Each individual has their own unique way of processing and understanding information. To make yourself understood, it is crucial to identify the language and words that your partner responds to best.

Some people may prefer direct and straightforward communication, while others may appreciate a more gentle and diplomatic approach. By paying attention to your partner’s communication style and responses, you can tailor your message to convey your thoughts and feelings effectively. This process may involve using specific examples, metaphors, or analogies that resonate with your partner’s understanding and perspective.

    Good communication is so very important in any relationship, as husband and wife,but also with your kids and even friends. This needs to be from both ends though, he needs the will to understand the wife or girlfriend as well, and sometimes that is the problem, in my opinion. They just don’t want to make an effort, what to do then in this case? I think that I would just give up honestly and it would be time to move on to someone that wants to listen to my thoughts.

      Yes, that is a struggle that alot of people experience. Your thoughts are pertinent and you deserve to have someone who cares about your thoughts and feelings.

      But it’s important first of all to remember that sometimes when we percieve that someone doesn’t care or isnt putting in the effort, it is just our perception. This is another reason  knowing their language and their values is so important.

      If you follow the steps in this article, you are well on your way to be understood. If the person sincerely does not care, then it becomes necessary to draw lines in the sand and create boundaries.
