Had a bad fight? Well then you got to make things right. Disagreements and arguments are part and parcel of every relationship but growing out of it is what ultimately matters. It’s the whole process of love, fight, make up and love again that makes relationships interesting and worthwhile. If you just had a bad fight, screamed out disappointing comments about each other and now wondering how you make things right, well here are some things you can do.
- Talk it out
As you go on with a fight, you will both end it on a bad note, trying to emerge ‘right’. However, it is vital that you pause it all, take a step back and calm yourself first. Do something you find peace in such as hitting the gym, doing a quick sketch or writing a poem about the feelings you experience. Let your partner have some alone time too. Next, you both need to be willing to talk it out. Miscommunication is one of the biggest problems among couples that aggravate into unnecessarily large fights. So, sit down and talk calmly. You might think that staying mum and letting it pass is a good idea, however it is not. There are still complaints and resentments that need to be addressed which will elevate if not solved fast. Each take turns and put forth your grievances, hear each other out and then come to common conclusions.
- Time for gifts
The right gift at the right time will definitely end things on a good note. Who wouldn’t like a bit of pampering? You can gift her bouquet of hydrangea Singapore; her favourite flowers along with a nice box of chocolates, a teddy bear and a card with a big I’m sorry. She might get you a cap of your favourite sports team or a simple pair of cufflinks. It’s the thought that counts so anything that brings meaning would be appreciated. You can even cook for each other or plan a day out, just so you can spend time together and forget the disagreement.
- Hugs are free
Research shows that arguing while holding hands or hugging in each other or any other way of physical connection is impossible. That’s the strength of physical intimacy and nothing will tell you care about her as big warm hug. It might be hard to say nice things to her after you’ve been shouting at her a few moments ago. In such situations, hugs come in handy. There’s no need to talk, just hug and you’ll forget what you were fighting about.
