Sometimes, the nagging partner isn’t entirely at fault; in so many relationships, some partners are pushed into nagging even when they aren’t so ordinarily.
While there are people who just have the habit of nagging, criticising, complaining, taking undue advantage and trying to seek control, so many others are pushed into nagging by their own partners; and I mentioned the things that could turn one into a nagging partner in a previous article.
If you are found in this situation, where you unfairly push your partner into nagging, these tips would help calm the situation.
Sometimes, all you have to do is listen to what your partner is saying. Don’t talk back, don’t fight, just listen, and you would understand your partner’s point of view better.
Some people believe that the only way to react when they are being nagged at is to either shout back or keep calm and not care about what’s being said.
This is the wrong way to go about it; both shouting at your partner or keeping calm wouldn’t solve anything. Communicate more with your partner; listen to each other and talk to each other. This would help smoothen things out. Don’t underrate the power of communication.
3. EXPLAIN YOUR INTENTIONS BETTER
You might have a good intention about why you did what you did, but it’s better to explain your intentions to your partner in a peaceful way; and hopefully, your partner would understand you better.
4. DO YOUR BIT
Rather than being nonchalant, do your bit; do what you’re supposed to do. Don’t avoid your roles and responsibilities, and expect your partner not to be angry about it.
5. WORK AS A TEAM
Don’t let the relationship revolve around you; it shouldn’t be you making all the decisions. Work as a team and a unit, and your relationship would be better for this.
6. SHOW THAT YOU REALLY CARE
Show each other that you really care about each other and that you care about the relationship. When this is missing, it would be easier for any of you to have disgruntled feelings. However, when you care about each other and show each other that you mean a lot to each other; you would easily solve all those relationship problems.
When you do these in your relationship, you would be surprised at how smoothly your relationship would be.
