Relationship Advice On Resolving Conflict

We all know that conflict is going to happen in our relationships. It is natural and it is okay that it will occur. Some relationship advice that can make a difference is to plan for the conflict that will happen.

It's gonna happen, so why not plan for it like you would plan for your own future? If you learn about resolving conflict now you will do better for all the years in your future.

To begin with, there are two conflict styles in general. One is to attack and dominate. The other is to withdraw. These are the two general, common ways we all deal with conflict.

Are you someone who tends to yell and raise your voice? You are an attacker. Do you insult or try to debase your mate? If you attack, you want to be aware of this.

You could be someone who retreats. Are you the one who goes behind a wall of silence? Do you hold your anger in and let it build up into a cold fire? Do you put walls between you and your lover after an argument?

Here is what is important at this stage. You want to NOTICE what way you tend to act in conflict. This is the best way to have a chance to change it.

Then, go to work on what you have noticed. If you are an attacker, see what else you can do besides insult your mate. Go outside and scream, then come talk to them. If you are someone who retreats, learn how to stay in the room and talk it out.

Determine how much your style costs you in and after conflict. Attacking your mate can kill off the relationship. Retreating can do so as well, plus it can hurt you to hold in all that anger. Learn to talk through conflict now and it will help you in the future.

We never got taught relationship skills in school.  Spending a few minutes learning more relationship intelligence can pay off with years of more love, deeper bonding and emotional connection.  Relationship advice can be simple and doesn't need to be hard to follow!
