You can't truly be in love unless you are emotionally honest with your partner. Your partner may not even know the real you-only the version of you that you use as a shield. This isn't a healthy relationship. Instead, learn to lower your defenses and work toward honest and authentic communication, with psychologist Michael L. Silverman, EdD, as your experienced guide.
Simply Intimate first starts with an evaluation of your current communication patterns. Silverman helps you understand the difference between what aids communication and what blocks it. While much of Silverman's work is focused on the connection between you and your partner, he also encourages you to examine issues of self-confidence and self-esteem that may be standing in the way of this connection. By finding ways to feel better about yourself, you can become ready to show your true self to your loved ones. Silverman also introduces strategies to confront challenges, solve problems, and share emotions together.
Silverman recommends taking authentic communication seriously but also having fun with the process. Falling in love and forming a relationship are supposed to be happy experiences. Use his advice to improve each moment with your partner.
