How to Avoid Silly Arguments with Your Partner
Communication in a relationship prevents silly arguments. We must be able to talk about everything and not bottle up our emotions.
Arguments are normal in a relationship, but what about all those arguments that start because of something silly? Silly arguments can destroy our relationship, so we have to learn how to avoid them.
Have you ever heard the expression that we can sometimes make a mountain out of a molehill? This happens in arguments between partners.
However, the reason for their quarrel is a lack of communication and not listening to each other.
Both talking and listening are equally important in a relationship. Understanding each other well and making things clear is fundamental.
If we don’t do this, then silly arguments will crop and we’ll encounter problems that will affect our relationship. That is why it’s important to learn how to avoid them effectively.
Social networks and communication with your partner
Using social networking sites can be a fantastic option to stay in touch with your partner, but can also lead to serious conflicts.
Misunderstandings, words that mean one thing but are understood as being another thing, jealousy, accepting people as friends all can lead to silly arguments that could have been avoided.
It’s better to speak with your partner face to face, even if it’s via Skype. Call them and avoid sending them messages that can lead to misunderstandings.
In addition, any problems or doubts that may arise regarding social networks should be communicated as soon as possible. The worst thing you can do in a relationship is to keep things to yourself.
Talking will always be the way to the solution. Of course, don’t communicate through messages but face-to-face. This is the best way two people can understand each other.
Beware of bottling up your emotions
Many silly arguments arise when one partner finally tells the other something they’ve been bottling up. When this happens, there are several issues that need to be addressed.
When we don’t express ourselves in a disagreement, we don’t forget about it, even though we can ignore it. The problem is that our feelings will spill out, at the least opportune moment and may cause an argument.
Do you know what would be a good way to avoid this? Take time out to talk about the relationship. This will allow you to tell your partner about everything that you have kept bottled up because you haven’t found the time to express it.
It’s necessary to tell your partner the important things that go through your mind, even if you think this takes great effort. It may be foolish, but not doing this may be the trigger of a silly argument.
The big problem that many couples face today is that their communication in the relationship is not entirely sincere and open. Therefore, we continue to keep things we will reproach in the future.
Let’s not do it. Let us not be afraid to say what we think and feel.
Don’t let past problems resurface
This is something that has a lot to do with bottling up our emotions. This is because we continuously look towards the past, or in other words towards those situations or moments that hurt us.
It’s a hard and cruel way of comparing your current reality with a problem you had in the past, which had supposedly already been solved, but now crops up again.
We must learn to look towards our feet in order to walk towards a promising future, instead of remaining anchored in past experiences that will prevent us from moving forward.
There are many people who aren’t able to live fully in the present, as they have not gotten over past experiences. Fears, doubts, traumatic experiences. We need to overcome all this right now.
As the common saying goes, it’s better late than never, so why not solve all those issues now in the present? Don’t keep all your feelings bottled up in a relationship and leave situations unsolved.
A relationship must be taken care of, and even pampered. In order to do this, we mustn’t bottle up our emotions to eliminate the reproaches. Instead, we must forgive our partner, and most importantly, communicate with them.
Talk to your partner, face to face, without feeling self-conscious, without being afraid to say certain things. Being in a relationship means feeling free to communicate what you’re feeling and what you’re thinking.
This prevents silly arguments.
