Miley's lyrical deterioration of her relationship caught the attention of millions.

In any intimate relationship, the effective technique is not to "break walls" and use wrecking force to get what you want, but rather employing techniques to build trust and mutual respect between partners. Effective communication rests in how you ask, not what ask. Miley's attempt to break her partner down ended in the destruction of the relationship they shared, which ultimately left her "crashing in a blazing fall."
