Disagreements with your partner is also part of being in a healthy relationship. While these disagreements will arise sometimes in your relationship, the way you recover from the disagreement is really important.
Here are 5 things you should avoid doing after an argument with your partner
1. NEVER LET A MISUNDERSTANDING GO UNRESOLVED FOR TOO LONG
The sooner you resolve the misunderstanding with your partner, the better for your relationship. When you let a misunderstanding linger for too long without resolving it, you make it harder to resolve because leaving feelings to fester can only bring more anger to the issue.
2. YOU LET THE WORLD KNOW ABOUT IT
When you let the world know about your misunderstanding with your partner, you can never take it back even after you reconcile with your partner. The problem with revealing your misunderstanding with a third-party is that they will see your partner differently even after you make up with your partner.
3. YOU REFUSE TO ACCEPT YOUR PARTNER’S APOLOGY
When you refuse to accept your partner’s apology after a fight with your partner, you prolong the problem and make the situation worse. Be willing to accept your partner’s apology to avoid prolonging issues. Avoid holding on to anger and accept your partner’s apology.
4. YOU PRETEND LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED
Pretending like nothing happened after a misunderstanding with your partner is wrong. When you bottle things up, you make yourself frustrated until the day you finally explode. Instead of pretending like nothing happened, talk to your partner about it so you can solve it and move on.
5. THREATEN TO BREAK UP
Avoid threatening to quit a relationship after a misunderstanding with your partner. When you do this, it shows you would rather walk away than work on the problem. The worst time to contemplate breaking up is immediately after a misunderstanding with your partner.
