Handle conflict in your relationship


  1. Address conflicts in your relationship.
    Articulate the truth just like you experience it.

  2. Explore and walk through the implications and intentions of your issues.
    Say what happened, express how you felt and how you are presently feeling.

  3. Change patterns of behavior that contribute to dysfunctional cycles.
    For example, stop bringing up past grudges.

  4. Distinguish conflict from drama.
    Conflict can be worked out through tools like learning, addressing, processing, and resolving, whereas drama never responds to any tools

  5. Admit your wrongs.
    Accept your faults and take responsibility whenever you are wrong. Admit when you are being rude and apologize.

  6. Resolve personal and mutual issues through compromise.
    Make compromises with your partner so you can grow closer through your struggles. For example, you can go with him to the cinema even if you are not a movie fan.

  7. Live in the present and not in the past.
    Let go of your past hurtful experiences by seeing a therapist or by reading on how to heal from traumatic experiences.

  8. Show negative emotions with loving intent.
    Correct your partner in a loving way. For example, tell him how disappointed you are without scolding him.
