How to improve your christian dating relationship

While criticism is hard to hear and often exaggerated or colored by the other person’s emotions, it’s important to listen to the other person’s pain and respond with empathy for their feelings.

Also, look for what’s true in what they’re saying; that can be valuable information for you.

Instead of trying to ‘win’ the argument, look for solutions that meet everybody’s needs.

Either through compromise or a new solution that gives you both what you want most, this focus is much more effective than one person getting what they want at the other’s expense.

Sometimes tempers get heated and it’s just too difficult to continue a discussion without it becoming an argument or a fight.Rather than saying things like, “ really messed up here,” begin statements with “I”, and make them about yourself and your feelings, like, “I feel frustrated when this happens.” It’s less accusatory, sparks less defensiveness, and helps the other person understand your point of view rather than feeling attacked.Learn more about "I messages" and other assertive communication techniques.(If you don't 'get it', ask more questions until you do.) Others will more likely be willing to listen if they feel heard.These cognitive distortions sometimes make it difficult to see other points of view. When someone comes at you with criticism, it’s easy to feel that they’re wrong and get defensive.
