5 Principles For Making Fights More Productive

We’ve all done it, pick a fight over nothing. Be it from a lack of sleep, being “hangry” or simply having too much stress can result in us being grumpy.

These moments can lead to hurtful and unproductive fights.

So, how do we know when it’s time to drop something and when it’s time to start a tough conversation?

Here’s an interesting article on what young couples are fighting about, and how important these fights can be: "9 Fights Every 20-Something Couple Has That Actually Prove You're Healthy

The unhealthy things that find their way into our lives if left unchecked, can be the seeds of significant destruction to our relationship. 

Here are some principles to consider and some questions to ask yourself and each other:

1. Is there a pattern that is not healthy for your relationship? It is worth bringing up! Fight for your relationship. How can you talk about what you are noticing together to learn from it and create strategies to move forward differently?

2. Is there an imbalance in your relationship that leaves one of you not practicing good self-care? Is one of you carrying too much of the weight in a certain area of what should be shared responsibilities?

3. Have you separately or together developed an unhealthy habit that needs to change? This can be so many different things - working too much, drinking too often, eating junk too often, etc. How can you support each other towards being healthier? Without judging each other, what can you talk about patterns so that you can make better choices? What additional resources would be helpful?

4. Have you been speaking each other’s love languages enough lately? What do you want and need more of from each other?

5. Where are things out of balance with other significant relationships in your lives? Do you need more time with friends? Less time with friends and more focused couple time?

“Fights” can be the start to important resets. A fight doesn’t have to be accusatory or damaging. It really can be simply a chance to tell each other how we are feeling about specific things and letting our partner know the impact that patterns, situations and incidents are having on us.

What makes fights most productive is when we can both look at what we are contributing that has been unhelpful or unhealthy for the relationship or each other AND look at what strengths and gifts we have that can bring positive change and contribute to your growth as a couple.

So often it is through the tough patches that we get our most growth. The tough conversations that we choose to have with our partners can truly allow our relationship to deepen to the next level of intimacy and maturity.

What’s next for you? What conversation can help strengthen your relationship?

Until next time,

Hello Everyone my name is jaxson melanie from USA. I got married ten years ago to a loving husband we had two kids. We had the best home until my husband started behaving awkwardly. it was then i discovered that he was seeing another woman. our marriage moved from bad to worse until he eventually left the home living me with the kids. He took away my home and happiness. i had lived with sorrow, rejection and pain ever since then. on till a friend of my Linda told me about DR. PETER who helped her when she had same problems with her husband. she told me he could solve all marital and health problems. we contacted him and i narrated my story to him. so he promised to help me do a love spell to help me get him back home to me. so after 24hours he was done with the spell and my husband called me on and told me that he is very sorry for all he has done to me. now my husband is back home to me permanently. all thanks to DR.
