Always Avoid these 7 Actions When Fighting with a Loved One
To hurt someone with a bunch of words is the easiest thing to do. All you have to do is just think of something toxic and spew it out in ten seconds and voila, you have shot your target. But, have you ever given a thought about the consequences of your actions? Those words can cause someone a lifetime of pain. In fact, if involving a partner, they could leave you or forgive you but your words will leave a permanent scar never to be forgotten. As powerful and positive words can be, they can be equally negative, toxic and damaging. Here are 7 things you should never say to a loved one.
1Don’t include other family members in a fight with your loved one
Your argument, spat or if more serious then let’s call it a fight concerns only the two of you. If you involve your parents or any member of your family, then the conflict gets worse and may have disastrous fallout into a bigger family mess. In such cases, when peace returns, everyone including the family members will remember everything and may even use information you revealed against you and your partner when they get the chance. Not all family members are considerate of such things, you may have a toxic member too.
You may lose respect from your family
If you know that whatever quarrel or dispute you are having with your partner now is to going to be serious enough to make you both separate, then it’s not worth involving family. This is because in the heat of the moment if you try to gain their support at the expense of your partner, they obviously are not going to like the fact that you’ve made up eventually and will somehow look at you with disdain or disrespectfully, well, some families and even parents are like that.
On no account should ever any argument or fight ever lead to violence. As a man, you should never ever strike a woman as it is unbecoming of your stature as a man. A woman should never strike her partner simply because that could lead to a serious scuffle where your partner could out of reflex hurt you. Moreover, he is after all your partner and no fight is worth graduating to violence.
Violence also drowns out the good feelings for good
People sometimes tend to show their worst sides when fighting and may end up trying to resort to violence just to prove their superiority. Don’t allow your partner to use violence and neither should you regardless of how angry you both are because the physical pain caused by either of you is simply going to drown all the good feelings you had for each other.
