MIND READING- knowing what you’re thinking without you telling them.
Assumptions are a gateway to disappointment. Assuming that you’re partner will know what you want OR how you feel without COMMUNICATING is going to cause problems.
When you’re in a long term relationship you start to assume make predictions about your partner. Because of a sense of familiarity you make assumptions about their wants/feelings/thoughts. And you also have an assumption that they too know about your thoughts/feelings. This leads to misunderstandings
What you’re ASSUMING might not be what they’re THINKING.
This causes frustration, misunderstandings feeling of being unheard and/or unseen
