BreakThrough Relationship Advice #2: Practice using the word “WE” or “TAYO”.

From “Kasalanan mo ‘to, eh!” to “We can sort this out. Ano bang nangyari?”

From “Paano ba ako makakapag-ipon para sa future?” to “Paano ba tayo makakapag-ipon para sa future natin?”

From “Hindi ka na tulad ng dati!” to “Let’s take care of our relationship. Napansin ko lang kasi na hindi na tayo nagde-date tapos puro tayo OT sa work. Paano ba gagawin natin?”

Pansin mo ‘yung difference?

Relationship advice 03

“When we phrase our complaints or observations in terms of “you” our tone is accusatory, and pop goes the relationship bubble. Now it’s more like a relationship tribunal and there will be a sentence with one person left standing. It gets our amygdala (brain alarm system) firing for both the accuser and the accusee,” sabi ni Tamar Chansky Ph.D. base sa research ni Robert Levenson and his colleagues in an article How to Improve Your Relationship With One Simple Word from Psychology Today.

Gets?

Kapag “we” naman “we set in motion a “connectedness” program in the brain (and body) and so that rather than being in survival mode (think: you against me), we can be creative, generous, collaborative, and loving,” she said.

Oh! ‘Di ba?

Kaya nga kayo tinawag na “partner” meaning you’re in this together. Hindi kayo magkalaban pero magkakampi kayo.

“They (open-ended questions) open the door for your partner, giving them the opportunity to truly think about their response and share with you on a deeper, more honest level,” she said.

BreakThrough Relationship Advice #4: Makipag-communicate kapag may problema.

Nagtatampo ka? Communicate.

Naiirita ka? Communicate.

Nagseselos ka? Communicate.

‘Wag mo i-tweet or i-status sa Fb because it will only add fuel to the fire. Alamoyan!

Oh! Sasabihin mo na naman, “Dapat alam niya na ‘yun!”

Hindi talaga, Breaker, eh. Kung alam ba niya, would he/she do something that will intentionally damage you?

Hindi. Love ka niya, eh.
