Communication is the key to all the relationships we have, which means it is also the key reason that some of our relationships go “wrong”. Going “wrong” can have many different looks too, ranging from explosive to brooding silence, all the way to drifting apart and losing contact. However “wrong” looks for you, this relationship breakdown causes stress and our assumptions that we make of people can be a core factor.
Honestly, right now, people are tired and still a little fearful after all that the world has been through recently (and still going through). Fear mixed with fatigue can make an emotionally explosive cocktail. As we return to our lives after the Covid-19 crisis, relationship dynamics may have changed, and conflict may slip in where it never used to exist.
