Step #2 End every argument as soon as possible
If you want to use these steps to change your life, both of you have to be aware of what it takes to be happy in a relationship and both of you have to work towards it. It just can’t be a one sided effort.
Confusions and petty arguments are at times inevitable even in the most happiest of relationships. And it’s alright to have a strong opinion once in a while. But no matter what the little disagreement is about or however angry or upset either of you are, make up as soon as you can.
And that means no wasting time on huffing, puffing or whining. You may be really angry, but learn to hold your partner’s hand and say “hey, I’m sorry we had a fight. Can we forget about it/talk about it some other time?”
What would work even better is a warm hug after a disagreement. Always understand that no matter what the differences are, both of you are in love each other. So whatever the issue, end it soon or talk about it when the tension isn’t so thick.
