Do you really understand what the other person is saying and what they mean by what they say? Masculine and feminine communication have two different modalities of working. Masculine communication is logical and literal response, they want to solve this problem" where as the feminine communication is about connection, curiosity, going deeper.

Practice mirroring/reflecting back what you are hearing them say with EMPATHY verses trying to inject a fight, this will allow a clearer connection to what we mean through the words we are expressing.
