7 Things You Must Avoid When Fighting With Your Beloved
This Is the Best Way To Fight With Your Partner, According to Psychologists
Conflicts are a built-in part of any relationship. No two people, no matter how perfectly matched, will get along in perfect harmony at all times. This was not the case earlier in our relationship, especially not when we were engaged; then if we went two days without a fight it was cause for celebration. We used to fight bad and dirty. Petty disagreements would spiral into all-out war.
Fighting, even if it was fighting fair, was for the more incompatible. Fast forward a couple of decades and what can I say? But let me explain …. My parents never fought, so I had good reason to believe that a fight-free relationship was possible. They never said a bad word about each or to each other. Or each other. Eventually, they divorced.
When it comes to relationships , conflict is inevitable. Couples can disagree and, yes, even fight while still showing compassion and respect for each other, according to psychologists. That said, frequent heated and hurtful conflict is certainly not healthy or sustainable, either. You can have conflicts with your partner in a constructive way, and it may actually bring you closer together, according to a paper published by the Society for Personality and Social Psychology. Researchers found that expressing anger to a romantic partner caused the short-term discomfort of anger, but also incited honest conversations that benefited the relationship in the long run.
