Most relationships have some conflicts! It is common to have conflict in your relationship and that means you disagree about something. However, it doesn’t mean you don’t like each other. Moreover, partners who have a constant conflicts and disagreements may result in becoming angry towards each other.
Cool down before talking
The conversation will be more productive if you have it when your emotions have cooled off a little, so you don’t say something you may regret later. Talk to your partner about how you feel and what you want without putting blame on them. Be clear and specific! Be open about what you don’t like without criticism and judgment. Attack the problem, not the person.
Take responsibility for mistakes
Apologise if you have done something wrong; it goes a long way toward setting things right again. Recognise some problems are not easily solved. Not all differences or difficulties can be resolved. You are different people coming from different background! However, your values, beliefs, habits and personality may not always be in alignment. Moreover, communication goes a long way toward helping you understand each other and address concerns.
Maintain calm and respectful manner during heated conversations. Don’t cross the lines by insulting your partner. However, if your partner consistently gets very heated, aggressive or starts cursing! Those are signs that your relationship may be abusive. Moreover, no matter what caused an argument, no one should yell at you, curse, make you feel uncomfortable or scares when you are arguing. You should never feel like you are being attacked in your relationship.
Get to the root of the problem
Sometimes when you argue with your partner it is because someone’s needs are not being met. However, consider things from your partner’s point of view and put yourself in their shoes, then ask yourself how you would feel if the roles were overturned. Moreover, learn to understand your partner instead of just trying to push your point across.
Find some middle-ground
To find balance between what your partner want or comfortable with is very important. However, if a couple cares about making their relationship to work out, they will come to an agreement on things without feeling like they are making huge sacrifices for a relationship. Moreover, to compromise in any relationship is a good way to resolve conflicts and to find a middle-ground.
