You both grew up in a different household with different cultures. Now when you come together, you may notice that certain things annoy you about your partner. So what should you do?
I remember we had a recent dispute about time management and how I manage my time. Funny enough, my husband doesn’t manage his time perfectly either, but he makes it a point to let me know that I can do better. While he is right, I still want to debate about how wrong he is. I grew up with a laid back mentality. So I take things at the pace that I want to complete something. I am organized in my own way. He is always in a rush to get things done.
Here are some tips on how to have a decent discussion rather than shouting and spewing crazy things at each other when you face a disagreement about a certain matter.
- Listen to each other carefully.
- Give each other a chance to respond with no interruptions.
- Speak with love.
- Remember all the positive things about each other and say them too.
- You do not have to agree on everything, but you should respect each other and found a happy place to heal and move on from the matter.
