After a fight with your partner, use the momentum to create lasting change in your relationship.
In a big fight, you can find yourself doing and saying things you deeply regret. Do any of these happen when you have huge arguments?
- Saying mean things that aren’t true
- Making threats about the relationship being over
- Yelling or name-calling
- Bringing up past arguments or hurts
- Using black and white language like, “You never…” or “You always…”
- Saying or doing something hurtful back
- Leaving, separating or moving out
