The Importance of Emotional Safety and Breaks in Communication

In a successful couple, when one partner senses they are becoming overwhelmed or flooded during a conversation, they take a break and specify when they will resume the conversation. This allows them to come back to the discussion when they are calmer and ready to communicate effectively. By doing so, the conversation can be transformed, and they can better understand each other's experiences and perspectives.
