The first tip is no right fighting. Do you need to be right? Does your partner need to be right. What if you were to let that go? It could actually be ok for you to be wrong. There is a freedom in this. Think about it. Second tip. Don’t argue. It’s doesn’t help. Instead take a walk if necessary to deescalate your anger. Then come back. That’s a crucial part of the step. We don’t want your partner to feel abandoned. Give it an hour if necessary and then come back to have a conversation. Finally scheduling a conversation. What if you call it a conversation and not an argument or a fight. Wouldn’t that help. Put in in your calendar in ink and follow through. In the meantime you don’t need to be bringing the conversation back up over and over again. I hope this helps you to get back on track with your relationship.
