Fair fighting, sounds like an oxymoron, right? The truth is that every relationship will have its ups and downs, and every relationship is different. However, establishing ground rules or boundaries in the relationship when handling disagreements is a great way to ensure respect and communication between you. We all have different communication styles, originating from our families or role models, and it takes work to find communication methods that work for both parties in the relationship. What we need to know and accept is that regardless of the amount of time together, the amount of love, you are different people, with different needs, different love languages and these differences will present themselves in ways completely unrelated. How do we handle this?
If you and your partner are having issues related to communication or arguing, at Orlando Thrive Therapy, we have multiple couple's counselors in Orlando trained to help you navigate these differences.
