Hold Your Partner’s Hand and Accept Responsibility for Your Part of Fight
The argument takes two persons, and even if you think you’re right, you somehow contributed to blowing it up.
Accept your part and say “I’m Sorry” or “I admit I reacted without listening to your concerns.” It’s easy to blame the others and call them stubborn. But, it involves two-parties not listening to each other because of the ‘EGO’ factor. Figure out what wrongful you did and own up to it.
Your partner will be surprised and pleased, and chances are s/he will admit the wrongful they did during the quarrel.
Also, don’t forget the things you should never do after a fight with your partner–
- Announce your fight publically or on social media
- Hold on the anger
- Rejecting the apology from your partner
- Act as if nothing happened and giving them the cold shoulder
- Mentioning Divorce
- Having make-up sex when one or both you of don’t feel it
- Thinking about of the cause of the squabble
Lastly, if nothing works to make up with your significant other after a huge fight, just run and give them a tight hug.
And, say “Fight with me. Shake me, cry with me, yell or scream at me. Be utterly annoyed and fed up with me. But, just stand your ground and love me.”
Relationships are precious. Handle them delicately and keep safe in the coffer of your heart. And, cherish the love that bounds you together.
