Breaking the ice, after a cold winter

This note is about communication, specifically that situation where there's stress in a relationship and you find yourself not communicating about a difficult issue.

There could be all kinds of reasons why you've stopped talking, maybe it's to avoid arguments, or avoid facing something you feel awful, afraid or hopeless about? In any case there's a sense of avoidance. There's also a sense that either talking wont help, or that the price in terms of feared consequences or wounded pride is too high.
So the reasons for not talking boil down to fear, anger or hopelessness.

But while you've focusing on avoiding communicating, it's easy to forget one simple fact.
