“Communication – the human connection – is the key to personal and career success” – Said By Paul J Meyer.
“Communication leads to community, That is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.”- Said By Rollo May.
“Communication is the first thing we really learn in life. Funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking, the harder it becomes to know what to say or how to ask for what we really need”- Meredith Grey (Grey’s Anatomy)
“Communication is a skill that you can learn. It’s like riding a bicycle or typing. If you’re willing to work at it, you can rapidly improve the quality of every part of your life. “- said by author Brian Fracy.

How important is communication in a relationship?
Communication in a relationship is extremely important because it acts as the judge, jury, and executioner who have the final say on whether your relationship lives or dies an unnatural death. Being able to communicate effectively can also stop needless arguments which cause a hindrance in nurturing healthy relationships.
Open, honest communication is important in a healthy relationship.
Communication in a relationship is like Oxygen to live. Without it, It dies.

Conversations are very important. To be able to tell other what is on your mind without fighting or arguing is the art we call “communication”.
How communication affects our relationships?
Relationships cannot grow without a proper amount of communication.
The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has already taken place.
It is not the distance that keeps people apart, but the lack of communication. The distance created due to our egos and refusal to discuss matters in a civilized way.
The biggest communication problem is we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply.
