All People Communicate Poorly - Relationship Problems Start

I often get asked a question you all have wondered and probably asked yourself too. Why is it so damn difficult in understanding my partner? It should be easier than what it is, shouldn’t it? Once I get past the trivial issues like leaving the toilet seat up and misunderstandings in short statements that later get taken out of context, we’re left with the basics.
