In conjunction with the eye, it conveys all your personal magnetism to the listener. The eye has a double use. It conveys impressions *to* the brain, and it conveys impressions *from* the brain. Both of these uses need cultivation. You probably have never thought about the importance of your eyes in conversation, but if you are to make full use of your mental powers, it is quite necessary to do so. You need to cultivate a concentration of gaze, but not quite in the sense that a hypnotist does. I have heard people complain of others who gazed at them so fixedly that it made them feel uncomfortable. Do not be like that, or you will lose all the persuasive effect you want to create. Get into the habit of looking straight at the person you are addressing, so that they can feel that they have your whole interest and attention. That is the impression you wish them to receive. People do not like your eyes to wander around the room while they are talking to you, nor do they want you to read something in your hand or on a desk. They want to see your eyes, because your eyes tell them what is going on in your mind.

Cohabitating, long distance relationships, choosing to have children or not. There are a lot of choices and none of them are necessarily “right” or “wrong”. However, there is one common denominator among every successful relationship: your partner will one day face challenges that are outside of your control and outside of your experience. So how do you support them when you can’t move a roadblock out of their path? Is it even your responsibility to move it? Digging Deeper: Throughout the course of your relationship, the type of support that your partner needs may change. Mental illness, chronic pain, cancer, or family deaths name a few of the unpredictable things that may throw your relationship for a loop. According to the National Law Review, stress about finances, parenting disagreements, and household responsibilities are some of the most common challenges faced in relationships. To make things worse, COVID-19 has heightened anxieties leading to an uptick in divorce rates (National Law Review, 2020). According to the New York Post, the number of people seeking divorce from March to June of this year was 34% higher than March to June of 2019 (Rosner, 2020). Newly weds seem to be the demographic seeking divorce at a higher rate than ever before (Rosner, 2020). The Solution Supporting your partner through a difficult situation involves first realizing that we all have problems that we go through. This seems like a general statement that we are all aware of, but it’s important to acknowledge and be reminded of. Our partner’s struggles may be similar to or the same problem as the ones we are facing, but their experience is entirely independent of our own. It can be easy to ignore this when we get so caught up in our own day to day struggle. We may experience the exact same thing as another person, such as the pandemic, but no two experiences are exactly the same. SOURCES: Medina, Raphael. Supporting Your Partner: Long Term Illness.
