Letter validating marriage
During our long distance relationship, my partner and I refrained from communicating with each other through texting, and instead sent each other a long email every second or third day.The benefits were immense: There is something special in crafting a long letter to someone you love.In other words, when we compassionately exchange pieces of personal information with someone, we are closing the gap between us and becoming closer to each other.That’s exactly what I did a few months ago when an ongoing tension with a friend finally exploded with her sending me a very angry email.You actually get to see some of the other person’s personality through their handwriting.You don’t get distracted by notifications popping through the corner of your screen as you write.

Also, this is not restricted to people who live far away from you. If you start writing or typing and do it for a long enough period of time, even if at first you feel stuck, your brain will eventually start making valuable connections and accessing gradually more interesting thoughts.
Even if my partner and I live together now, it still fills me with joy when I wake up to find a surprise love letter on my bedside table. However, if you want to use your writing to powerfully address the root of your problems and create authentic relationship healing, then the next section is for you..
By pairing up strangers and making them ask increasingly personal questions to each other, the scientists proved that “escalating, reciprocal, personalistic self-disclosure” has the power to make people experience a greater degree of closeness.
But how much closer does that really bring us to our loved ones?
Does that count as ‘loving, consistent maintenance’? The good news is, I have been extensively testing a few writing practices which, if applied correctly and continuously, can help you: Although this might seem impossible — and even ridiculous — in a world where texting and constant updating are an inevitable part of our relationships, I believe this way of communicating was the reason why we stayed together (and remain together, more than 4 years later).
