Every relationship must have its shortcomings; for two people to agree continually on everything is a rare situation; misunderstandings are bound to happen, differences would eventually surface.
However, some arguments and misunderstandings in many relationships are childish and baseless and should not exist in any relationship.
The fact that quarrels are bound to happen doesn’t mean you should let it eat up your relationship. Quarrels would only bring harm to your relationship if not avoided, and that’s what this article would reveal.
Below are 5 reasons why you should avoid those regular and unnecessary quarrels.
1. IT BRINGS ENMITY
If you keep letting quarrels get the better of your relationship, enmity would gradually build up in that relationship till it eats up that relationship which would lead to a crash in the relationship. Quarrels bring bitterness, anger and all manner of emotions that would kill your relationship.
2. YOU COULD SAY THINGS IN THE HEAT OF THE MOMENT
This is another thing quarrels can do to your relationship; anger sparks up heavy emotions and can make you say things you don’t mean to say; quarrels can make you say things in the heat of the moment which your partner would never forgive, and this would end up ruining the relationship.
3. IT KILLS THE MOOD
No one is happy after a quarrel. Quarrels change the mood from happy to sad, from positive to negative. If this change in mood occurs frequently and isn’t properly handled, the relationship would suffer.
4. IT KILLS UNDERSTANDING
Understanding is everything in a relationship. Talking about a problem is a better way for couples than arguing about it; when couples talk, they afford each other the opportunity to listen, but when couples argue, there is no way anyone would listen, and this would hamper the understanding in that relationship.
5. QUARRELS LEAD TO MORE QUARRELS
This is one thing about quarrels, it just starts with a quarrel, from there to another and then to another, till it gradually turns love to hate, friendship to enmity and understanding to misunderstanding. If quarrels aren’t handled properly and on time, your relationship would suffer.
Do you quarrel frequently with your man or your lady? Do you let the quarrels linger on for a long time before reconciling? You just might be damaging your relationship little by little. Look for more subtle ways to handle misunderstanding in your relationship; quarrels wouldn’t solve a thing but it can destroy a whole lot.
