What does proactive communication mean?

Communication is key in any healthy relationship. Instead of waiting for a problem to arise in your relationship or for something to go wrong to start a conversation, establish an open channel of communication. This includes active listening, expressing yourself and your needs, and encouraging your partner to express themselves. This fosters an environment where both of you feel heard and respected, leading to less drama!


There are three ways to communicate proactively in your relationship:

1. Establish Clear Boundaries

2. Listen Actively

3. Ask Questions & Encourage Open Dialogue
