    Day 28: Become a Great Listener. “Reflecting”. When engaging with you wife today, let your first step be to simply reflect what your spouse has told you… “So what I hear you saying is___________.”
    Listen especially for the feelings they are telling you. “And you are feeling hurt by that.” Reflecting gives you as the listener a “Go-to” skill even when you do not know what to say. It is also a way of telling your wife that their words are very important to you and that you are listening and paying attention to them.

    Finally, reflecting gives your wife a chance to hear their own words given back to them so as to ensure you understand and to accurately fit or to adapt them to be even more accurate of their true feelings.

Start today and make those incremental, small but significant changes to improving your life with your wife. Tune in for Day 29 tomorrow…
