Relationships flourish when we tend to them as we would a living being. If we reflect on the relationship between oneself and another, it can be helpful to think about, what helps that relationship to grow? If a relationship is suffering, to look at where we are not tending it, and review the ways that we may be acting to damage it, and then take steps to change. One of the foundations for a healthy relationship is communication. The ability to listen to another person, is a fundamental way that we can tend our relationship whether it is with our partner, our child, a family member or work colleague.
