Communication gaps can lead to misunderstandings, ego clashes and create distress for both partners, turning a once healthy relationship into a source of stress.

Even though relationships revolve around communication, silence can sometimes speak volumes, often louder than words.

It can convey a spectrum of emotions from comfort, peace, frustration, to agony, possessing the power to heal or destroy.
