One of the most basic yet beneficial relationship tips out there:

Sometimes the simple skill of repeating back what you've heard your partner say in your own words can be one of the most basic yet most beneficial ways of communicating understanding.

"I hear you saying that you miss having time for just us together when we'd hang out and go to the movies or dinner. I understand that. I miss those times too."

Bearing witness isn't problem-solving. It's simply providing the empathy that important conversations need to enhance your intimate relationships.

You can love well by listening well.
