According to John Gottman from his 40 years of research with couples, creating a “Climate of Trust” is key to satisfying & long lasting relationships.
We all need help with this, however, since we only speak our “hormonal/gender specific language”, because that’s what comes most natural to us.
The beginning of creating a “Climate of Trust” is understanding the differences that create conflict. It’s through this understanding we can have compassion, acceptance and openness to learn skills on how to listen & communicate across the hormonal/gender differences so we can have a “Climate of Trust” in which we and our relationships can flourish! 🙂
