Arguing is one of the hardest things to wrap your head around. On the one hand, you want the other person to see things YOUR way. But on the other hand, you can’t help but yell and scream when you should be a little more reasonable. It’s a tough line to walk. And if you’re anything like most people, you’ve probably let a few things slip that you shouldn’t have actually said.
Here are some things you should keep out of arguments with your partner:
Everything they’ve ever done to upset you in your entire relationship.
Attacks on their character
Threats to cheat on them
Threats to break up
Questioning each other’s love
Throwing insults around
Using words like “always” or “never”
The silent treatment
The hardest thing to do in the midst of a heated argument is bite your tongue.
But unfortunately, the only way things are going to get solved is if you take a deep breath and communicate like you’ve never communicated before!
