Even the best relationships can crumble from a having a huge fight. When anger gets involved people rarely act rational. It can be hard to stay calm during a fight, and the next thing you know that little fight just turned into a huge one.
Sometimes you have to think to yourself, is the reason you are fighting worth losing your relationship? If the answer is yes, you shouldn’t be in the relationship anymore. If the answer is no, then there are ways in which you can rebuild your relationship and end the fight.
Here are 8 Ways to Rebuild Your Relationship After a Massive Fight:
Talk it out
You can’t move on if you don’t tell each other why you are angry. You need to talk it out, be understanding on both sides, and listen to each other. You should do this while you are both calm so you don’t just yell at each other. Communication is key.
Don’t keep bringing up what caused the fight
While it is important to talk it out, don’t over-do it. You need to know when to move on from what is causing you to be angry. Sometimes little things can boil up and ruin the relationship, then it might be too late. You need to think about why you’re angry, address it will you partner and not continue to bring it up every time you get angry at them.
Forgive but don’t forget
They hurt you, it’s human nature to be resentful, but if you stay that way your relationship will not last. You need to learn to forgive, if you don’t then you need to leave the relationship. It’s impossible to forget, and you shouldn’t because if you keep fighting over the same thing, then you need to forgive each other or move on.
Give them space
After a fight you can’t think properly, it’s impossible even for the most level-headed people. You need to give your partner space and they need to give you space to think about what caused the fight and what you can do to fix it.
Obviously after the talking, or not. Sex tends to make you forget about the little irritating things that they say and do. It’s also a great stress reliever.
Go on a vacation
This is especially important if you have been fighting because of daily every day stress. You need to relax and take away your stress. Vacation can also be great for your overall mental health, which will make you both better partners.
Do an activity you both enjoy
There is nothing better than having fun with your best friend. Life gets in the way of a relationship sometimes, you need to relax and spend time together. Spending time together can remind you why you are in a relationship with each other.
Go to therapy
If you can’t solve your problems by talking to each other, maybe you should talk to someone else about it. Sometimes you have two people that love each other but really suck at communicating, well a therapist can help you get passed that barrier.
