Fighting with the love of your life can truly be scary and even worrying. Yes, all relationships go through hard times and fighting is simply one part of human nature. With that said regardless of what you are fighting about, how you make up after truly sets the tone for your entire relationship. Now if it’s your first fight or even your second, you may not always know what to say and when to say it, especially when you don’t know how your partner is truly feeling. Luckily there are a few tips to make up after a fight.

 

After a big blow up the best thing you and your partner can do is give each other some space. Many couples are very apprehensive to do this but sometimes talking out whatever started the fight isn’t needed at the moment. You have to remember that while you are fighting you tend to get angry and heated because you are wrapped up in your own emotions. This means that you will only react in frustration and anger. The best thing you can do is take some time to properly sit with your thoughts and with what your partner has said. Once you are both calm, you can move forward to the next step of making up.

This will be communication. Talking without judging is the best thing you can possibly do when trying to resolve a fight. When you sit down with your partner after a fight, it is important to remember that you need to be unbiased. This simply means being open to listening to what they have to say even if you don’t necessarily agree with them. Lastly, you know how they say actions speak louder than words? Well, the same goes when it comes to making up after a fight. All you need to do is actively listen to your partner’s needs and follow them with actions.
