- We’ve all heard the expression the grass is not always greener on the side. If the grass looks greener on the other side, it is probably because you are not mowing and watering your own. “Don’t worry about what is going well in someone else’s relationship. Spend that time celebrating your own successes and working out your own problems”.

Communication= listening + talking.
Take turns listening and talking to each other, empathize to demonstrate understanding and acceptance.
