Marriage Minute 3-25
If you don’t understand how to communicate with your spouse, you will cause frustration, more arguments, or even leave more unresolved conflicts. There
are four basic communication styles that people tend to us. It is helpful to
know your communication style: is it passive, aggressive, passive-aggressive, or assertive?
Passive style -unwilling, or unable to express feelings, needs, or what they believe. This communicator is hard to read and will often seem as if you’re talking to a blank wall. They avoid conflict at all costs.
Aggressive style –shares feelings, beliefs, and needs in an adverse, intimidating, or controlling way. They will try to win a verbal argument.
Passive-Aggressive –uses ambiguity, or indirect, and unclear communication, often with sarcasm or unnecessary humor. They often hide their thoughts and solve conflict by indirect conversation.
Assertive Style – has respect and encourages others to do the same. They are honest with themselves and others. They seek to understand rather than to be understood.
Which style do you use? Which type does your spouse communicate with?
Let’s communicate with our spouses in a way that makes them feel cherished.
Romans 14:19 ESV
“So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.”
