Making a deep connection with another person can sometimes be easy. Sometimes you can have that connection right away and not find it difficult to relate and share everything with them. However, other times it can be harder going into deeper levels. It’s definitely not possible!
There are several things you can do to make that deep connection with someone. The first step is to prepare yourself to make that link. Here are four ways you can make a deep connection with your spouse.
1. Make time for them
A deep connection does not happen within 30 minutes or a day, it takes more than that. It will take time daily and build up overtime. Consistently be there with each other—going for a walk, shopping for home décor, sharing a meal or just talking will begin to build a deep connection.
Remember to not let other thing distract you. Life can be pretty busy, especially with work and even kids, but making the time for them will create that deep connection.
If you might be trying to reconnect with each other than a lot of time will be needed in order to rebuild that deep connection. It will happen over a series of personal time with each other and conversations. Make more time together if you feel that connection is starting to fade.
2. Be open with each other
Creating a deep connection requires you to share your thoughts, desires, dreams, and emotions. Even if you have been married for a long time you have changed in several ways. Share your new dreams and desires with your spouse.
Talking about your dreams and desires you are showing a deeper part of yourself to your spouse. It might be scary, especially if you have had some bumps in your relationship with each other. Remember that the reward is worth it!
3. Prepare yourself
Your spouse will also open up to you, and it will be honest. There might be things you might not like to hear, especially if there has been some tension between you two. You might not agree with what they have to say, it might be hard to hear everything they have experience, but remember this is how they feel about everything that brought you up to where you are now.
Be open to hear what they have to say. Listen and give them comfort. Don’t interrupt when they are talking. Take time to digest what they are saying before you react. If you prepare yourself for this conversation you are likely to response in a move positive, sensitive, and loving way.
4. Be willing to make it work
Once you both have opened up yourselves and made the necessary steps to establish that deep connection, you have to both be willing to put the work into it to maintain it. A deep connection between spouses does not stick around after you establish it, you have to work daily to maintain it.
Make a point to share the details of your day with each other. Set guidelines for each other about how you feel about something the other person does if it upsets you or anything else you want. Don’t be afraid to ask the hard questions.
The more you prepare and ready yourself for a deep connection it will be worth it. Continue to work towards that meaningful connection and you two will have a bond that is stronger than anything!
