Emotional Translation: Learning Each Other’s Unique Languages

emotional translation

November 22, 2022

Emotional translation is not about what is said in a relationship, but how the other person hears it. Words or phrases that mean something to you could mean something completely different to someone else. Not knowing how to speak each other’s language could turn a simple misunderstanding into a blowup or even a breakup.

So for a relationship to thrive, we not only need to speak clearly and honestly, but in a way they can emotionally translate, and vice versa.

Here, I’m going to share two huge tips to be able to emotionally translate in a relationship. This will not only help you better communicate your needs, but fully understand theirs, too. 

In this episode, we’re talking about:

  • Why people interpret things differently
  • Three things people primarily fight over 
  • Two tips for being a better emotional translator
  • How to improve communication in a relationship
  • How to be more direct when speaking, without fear
  • Two relationship questions to ask yourself

Please listen and let me know how emotional translation inspires you to shift your relationship communication going forward. DM or email me (contacts below)
