If you’re a romantic like me, you probably think love is enough to make a relationship work – or else, it should be. After all, what could matter more than love?!
That’s what I used to believe… until I learned the hard way that actually, the ability to communicate matters even more.
When you don’t know how to speak and listen in ways that let your partner hear you (and allow you to hear her!), love ends up getting too damaged and bruised to survive.
You’ve been there, right? I think we all have!
Communication trumps all.
And where were we supposed to learn how to do this well? My parents didn’t know, so they certainly couldn’t teach me! I studied all kinds of stuff in school that I never use, but never had a course on how to create a happy, healthy relationship.
Weird as it is, our culture leaves us on our own when it comes to gaining the skills that are the most important of all, for most of us, in creating happiness.
And this is true for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation – but it’s even more true for lesbians, because we face so many pressures that straight people don’t.
That’s why we are so passionate about helping our community learn the alternative to painful relationships and devastating breakups — the alternative we call Communicate & Be Heard.
We weren’t born knowing this stuff. It took us a long time to learn. But we’re here to shorten your learning curve!
That’s why we’ve developed a four-step process to teach you the Communication & Be Heard skills, and we’ll be offering an affordable 4-module course starting in April, which we hope you’ll join!
