Choosing Your Words Carefully Makes Love Last

Communication with empathy is key.

“Words are things, I’m convinced. I think they get on the walls. They get in your wallpaper, they get in your rugs and your upholstery and your clothes. And, finally, into you.”

“When we communicate with contempt, we are truly mean…hostile humor, name-calling, mimicking, and body language such as eye-rolling and sneering. In whatever form, contempt is poisonous to a relationship because it conveys disgust and superiority, especially moral, ethical, or characterological.”

Meaningful communication is essential
