Help with communication!!!
I need some advice. I know that I am an enabler. I have been for many years. However, after I got divorced, I swore - as many do - that I would be a better communicator and express myself.
I have been with another person for many years, who is VERY defensive whenever I try to discuss money, needing help around the house, etc. I need some help in opening the conversation so that the "wall" does not go up as soon as I say "we need to talk". Can anyone offer advice??
