2. You totally don’t understand how they feel
You may spend each and every day conversing with and listening to your partner, but at the end of the day, you’re still two different people who won’t always see eye to eye. When your partner is going through troubles you just cannot comprehend, it’s best to express empathy over apathy. It’s times like these when they may just need a shoulder to cry on, so show your softer side. Psych Central explains that in order to empathize, you need to have a strong bond with your partner along with compassion. Empathy requires mindfulness, attention, and love, and it will bring you and your partner even closer.
