Reinvisioning Your Relationship . Tools for a new kind of dialogue
posted: Feb. 23, 2023.
Having a vision or a representation of different components that one needs through intimacy can help kickstart a difficult conversation- sex. By using a diagram, helps people start to envision what they need the most, and what they can compromise upon. For example, if someone needs more affection, they might be willing to give up time with their partner as long as their partner is more affectionate when they're together. You can really be helpful not only in realizing what one's needs, put the relationship as a whole. 😀
And, this can be a great tool in revisioning what the relationship can look like in the future. People's needs change throughout time, so I recommend coming back to this diagram, whenever one is craving more of one aspect, or becoming agitated with the abundance of another.
