Avoid letting every little hiccup in your relationship turn into a huge argument by learning how to keep the peace. Here’s how to do it:
· Compromise on issues that aren’t a big deal. Don’t dig your heels in and be stubborn on stuff that isn’t important to you. Be willing to compromise when you can and it will become easier to do in bigger situations too.
· Pick your battles. If you’re tempted to nag at your partner for every little thing, try to prioritize and choose only the ones that are really important. If you are able to let some things slide you’ll save yourself from harping at them about every little problem.
· Deal with the overarching issue. Rather than getting into fights every time they don’t call when they’re supposed to, just bring up the fact that you want to communicate better. Don’t focus on the little, surface issues or you’ll be arguing all the time. Instead, have one conversation about what the main issue is.
· Be honest. If you want to keep the peace, then be honest with your partner. Don’t get into the habit of fibbing or lying about little stuff because when your partner catches you in a lie its bound to open up a whole new set of arguments and issues that you could have avoided by being honest.
Your friends may know everything about your life and while it’s so tempting to share every juicy detail about your relationship, resist the temptation and keep some things to yourself. It’s important for both people in the relationship to respect that certain things should remain private within the couple. Here’s why:
· It’s just between the two of you. It really is no ones business what goes on in your relationship. While it’s tempting to reveal everything when talking to your friends, ask yourself why you need to tell them, and think about if they really care. You should be able to keep your relationship private between the two of you.
· Turn the tables. Before revealing a private detail of your relationship to your friends, think about how you would feel if the tables were turned and your partner were revealing those same details to their friends. If you don’t like the thought of them telling their friends, you probably shouldn’t be telling yours.
· You aren’t just telling your friends. They are probably telling their friends, who are telling their other friends, and so on. Be careful if you think you’re only confiding in one or two people because the number of people who end up knowing might actually be much higher.
