Communication is the key to a successful relationship, but be sure to remember the following:
In order for a key, of any kind, to be effective, it requires consistency and follow-through.
Imagine getting up in the morning and instead of inserting your car key into the ignition of your automobile, you just decided to kick the tires while you yelled “I shouldn’t have to do this. I already used my key on yesterday. This stupid vehicle should start on its own now.”
Sounds funny, right?
Yet, this is precisely what we do with our loved ones. We hear statements like “communication is the key” and we act as if all we need to do is make ourselves heard one good time and then we’ll be cruising down easy street.
But just like a car, your relationship won’t run for long if you aren’t okay with using your key every single time you want it to move forward.
