Communicating Better to Build Deeper Relationships With Scott Victor Nelson


Think of the last time you argued with your partner — how did you react? When we are put on the spot,  we often react one of two ways; we either lash out or calm down. Being in a relationship is not all about showering your partner with gifts. To build a deeper relationship with your partner, there are important pieces of the puzzle that people often forget: working on yourself and learning to communicate better.

In this episode, Scott Victor Nelson joins us to talk about how creating deeper relationships starts within yourself. This means uncovering your childhood traumas and responses and being vulnerable and honest. Scott shares how taking ownership will help create genuine communication and intimacy with our partners. Taking responsibility for yourself requires higher levels of consciousness, and Scott suggests a few activities and exercises that could help.

"If you come from any kind of traumatic background, where you come from an experience where you had to shrink to be safe, then just owning what you actually really want — what's really true for you — can be terrifying because you’ve denied it for so long".

"When we make that commitment, we free ourselves up to actually have a focus of what is it going to take to honour that commitment".

"Love isn't a noun, but it's an action. If I'm not behaving in a loving way to my partner, if I'm not taking the actions of love, I'm doing a disservice to the moment that I'm in".

"It's so about clear communication. But both people have to take full responsibility for their own stuff, which means they have to do the work to know what their stuff is. Because if not, we're just perpetually in a relationship with someone that's not the person in front of us".

"The idea of just expecting to show up and be conscious, if you're not cultivating space to grow, your consciousness isn't just going to happen"".
