Keep Your Cool: When Arguments Arise in Relationships
When arguments arise in relationships, we can say things that do irreversible damage. Before saying, or doing, something you can’t take back, check out a few ways to keep your cool.
When things get a little too heated, moving away from the argument and that person may be the best solution. Tell your significant other that you need some time to cool down. Take a walk around the house; go for a run at the park to cool off, whatever you need to do assess the problem. When ready to talk, return to your home and hash it out.
Don’t Bring Up Stuff From the Past
Don’t drudge up things that happened in the past and reopen old wounds, especially if it has already been resolved. Forgive each other and move on. Focus on the current situation and be careful with your words.
Stop and Listen
When we’re angry, we often don’t want to hear what the other person is saying. We want to interrupt and talk over them to get our point across, but their opinion and feelings matter. Listen closely and try to understand where they are coming from. Once they have finished speaking, express yourself in a calm manner, detailing what’s wrong.
Relationships are give-and-take. Instead of focusing on who is right, find a way to meet each other’s needs. Victory is empty if you end up alone.
Taking a few deep breaths can help you calm down and give you some time to think before you react. Your focus will move from rising anger to feeling relaxed. Then, you can clearly communicate the heart of the matter. Inhale. Exhale.
