I asked that you answer this with scripture. Communication is a skill that requires conscious effort. It is a wise woman who seeks the counsel of older and spiritually grounded women in how to be a good wife and mother.
Negative communication can also include any communication that not only leads to hurt feelings, but emotional or physical abuse, as well as nonverbal communication. When couples encounter problems or issues, they may wonder when it is appropriate to seek marriage counseling.

God knows this design is the best. If we want His forgiveness, we must stop committing the sinful act 1 John 3:6 — No one who abides in Him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen Him or known Him and ask God for forgiveness. Do not add to His words, or He will rebuke you and prove you a liar. I would strongly suggest being a part of your local church that teaches Jesus is the only way and within that community have people come alongside you to help you in the transition.
