MY CHILD'S STRENGHTS
Clarifying doubts in relationship: Feelings
This question relates to honesty and trust or lack of understanding of your partner’s feelings.
Let’s check if you can understand your partner’s feelings by taking this small test:
1) Try to remember your partner’s last complains and make notes – what did he complain today? Yesterday?
Some Example: weather is cold today, I am late to work, why should I wait for you again?, don’t interrupt me please, my boss is killing me, your friends have negative influence on you, etc.
2) Now, ask him if you understood all his complains correctly. Then ask him to score you from 0 to 5 depending on how accurately you understood him.
Conclusion: If your score is 5, it means that you are attentive to your partner’s feelings and emotions - you can really understand them. So, if you have some doubts related to his feelings (he loves you or not, he wants to be with you or not, is he happy or not), you may be right.
If your score is lower than 5, it means that you have some issues in understanding his feelings and emotions, and your doubts may be based on misunderstandings which is good to clarify.
