Tip #1: Say “I’m sorry”—so many couples end up fighting for years and over time developing a cold approach to their relationships simply by being too stubborn to say I’m sorry. Let us be so bold as to suggest saying I’m sorry even when you think the other person is at fault. The biblical proverb found in Proverbs 15:1 holds true: A kind word turns away wrath… Start by saying I’m sorry and it will disarm the other party to the point where real communication can occur. Don’t be so prideful or stubborn. Your pride may cost you $10,000 or more!
Tip #2: Listen. Don’t just hear, but listen. Consider the fact that there are two sides to every coin. Even though you have your perception about things doesn’t mean that your partner doesn’t hold equally compelling or strong feelings about their position was well. By stepping back and simply empathizing a bit through active listening you can find that common ground can be reached. Common ground that can save you years of heartache and frustration.
Tip #3: Find space: When things get heated, find space. Don’t let the heat of the moment open the door to say things you will later regret. When you go through a break up many people say “Time heals all wounds.” This is true also for the heat of the moment. Time will heal what seems to be the harshest of pains and frustrations. Take a little bit of a time out and come back to deal with the issues later once you are calmed down.
