Making Up pg4

We spoke to Dr Bonnie Eaker Weil, author of Make Up, Don’t Break Up to find out how you can move past those tough times with your partner and save your relationship. Whether you’re not communicating properly or argue all the time about the smaller things, we’re pretty sure you can still make it work. Here’s how…

1. You’re Drifting Apart Try to find out what he’s hiding without shaming, blaming or judging him. Let him know that you are open to whatever it is he is hiding. Teach him that it is safe for him to talk to you. Be an empathetic listener. If the secretive behaviour continues without resolution, or he becomes defensive, seek outside help through counselling.
2. You Can’t Talk To Each Other Like You Used To
3. You Argue All The Time
4. He Is Being Secretive
5. Your Job Is Causing You To Spend More Time Apart
