This is a contribute (paying the bills, picking up around the house, whatever) then we’re trying show that what we do is equivalent…which it may well be in terms of comparative time/effort spent, but that doesn’t actually address the issue.Anger is like fire; when properly harnessed, it’s an incredibly useful and important tool. It can be hard to let go of things when the person who’s ticking you off is right there with you; you end up feeling pressured to you’re better, even if you’re still angry. Get a little bit of space and let yourself calm down. There are a lot of people who will tell you that you shouldn’t walk off, that every argument should be resolved right then and there.On the other hand, if you’re careless with it then you’re going to lose control and it will end up destroying everything you care about. It’s almost impossible to have a practical discussion with your partner when you’re caught up in anger; it’s entirely too easy to get distracted by side issues or to dredge up old issues to justify why you’re so pissed right now. Just because the things, then you need to give yourself time to cool down. You want to get away from the scene of the argument (which is going to just keep reminding you of the fact that you’ve had one) and do the things that let you cool off. Hit the gym and jump on the treadmill and burn out that fire by exhausting yourself. This is a spectacularly, crossing-the-streams-level idea; not every conflict is one that can be resolved in one sitting and trying to do so while you’re still angry makes it next to impossible.Tell them: “Look right now I’m too angry to think straight.
I’ll be back in 15 minutes/a half hour/an hour.” Here’s something that trips a lot of people up: sometimes we pick the wrong battles, whether we’re the aggressor or not. We get into fights – or make fights worse – because we don’t stop to ask ourselves whether the fight is one .One of the most common conflicts in relationships involves the desire to be “correct” rather than “right”.
