What is stated most often as the primary issue in relationship conflict?
However, unless there is a language barrier, or one has a learning disability or speech/hearing impediment, most of us "communicate" just fine.
The central issue is not a communication problem
but rather an honesty problem.
Why are we not being honest with each other? Because we are not being honest with ourselves.
The result of our self-deception ranges from chronic relationship conflict to physical violence.
There are three sources of conflict in any relationship:
1. The conflict person 1 brings into the relationship,
2. The conflict person 2 brings into the relationship, and
3. The conflict caused by the mixing of the two.
So how do we manage the conflict caused
by the mixing of the two?
