Ever Said The WRONG Thing?

Have you ever said the WRONG thing to someone (maybe even your spouse or partner) and then regretted it, or wished you had said something different?

Have you ever grasped blindly and with futility for the “right” words to say in a difficult relationship situation?

Have you ever “not said anything” to someone, even if the situation was important to you, because you didn’t know what to say or how to say it?

Of course you have.

We ALL have!

You’ve been in enough relationships to know that “words can hurt and words can heal…”

And while HOW you say something is incredibly important, sometimes WHAT you say can really have an impact (good or bad) as well.

A few weeks ago, I found myself clamping my mouth shut and staring at the kitchen counter because the wrong thing had slipped out… again.

My intention was good, and I didn’t realize until I saw Barry’s reaction that it had come across completely different from how I meant it.

Then, of course, he retaliated with words of his own that stung hard. He was trying to be constructive, but I took it as an attack.

Yes, words have a way of snowballing into something bigger.

Unless we know how to properly approach an issue in the first place.

Unfortunately, most couples don’t know how to do that.

Luckily for us, some colleagues of ours — one of whom I’ve been working with very closely lately — gave us a copy of their wonderful resource that spells it all out. It tells what words to use in certain situations, what words to avoid at all times, and what major communication mistakes to be aware of.

See, what you may not have known is that there are actually “Magic Words” which smart couples use to create more closeness, connection, peace, harmony, understanding and even passion in their relationships.

Now it’s becoming second nature to say the right thing at the right time, with the right intention and beliefs behind it, so it doesn’t get perceived the wrong way… or worse, totally backfire.

You can get your hands on the same resource, which helps you overcome one of the biggest relationship problems of all — and in all kinds of relationships.

Watch the space above tomorrow to find out how you can finally start, magically, saying all the right things… and reaping the rewards.
