3) Fight clean
“The other day my grandma told me, “when you and him are fighting, you both need to remember that it’s you two vs. the problem, not you vs. him.” and that hit me hard.”
Like we discussed, it is inevitable to have disagreements or conflicts in a relationship but it is important to remember that whenever a problem arises it is about two people being against the problem and not against each other.
When two people approach a conflict with this approach of being a team, they can put their point across without being offensive or mean to the other person. The intent is to resolve a conflict and not to put the other person down.
Therefore, it is very important to fight clean as two mature adults instead of letting the emotions get the better of us.
4) Work as a team
In a relationship, it is all about working as a team. It is not about individual successes and happiness; it is about the growth and happiness of both the partners.
It is important to meet your partner midway to ensure the happiness of both the partners instead of just thinking about having your way all the time.
For example, both the partners can have different vacationing styles. One can like to laze around and one can be adventurous and like to explore the place. One can be introvert and a homebody and need more quiet time to recharge, others can be an extrovert and like to socialize to recharge.
But when you are in a relationship, you have to learn to accommodate your partner’s preferences and lifestyle along with your own and move together as a team.
It is about coming together and inspiring each other to reach our highest potential without losing our own individuality in the process.
