Once you stay with your partner for a considerable period of time, it is quite natural to bicker about trivial issues. Bickering does not signal the end of a relationship, it is just the minute frustrations and the regular petty arguments that you have with your partner which might seem annoying. Here are a few facts about bickering in a relationship:
- We bicker with our partner only because we are scared to admit our faults openly, the ones which deeply torment us. Also, we tend to assume a state of superiority or authority over our partner by engaging in bickering. At other times, the lack of energy for fruitful communication and conversation prompts us to bicker with our partner.
- Most of the fights in a relationship originate from the fact that we need to prove that we are right and our partner is not. Control your urge to prove that you are right and do not bicker. If it is starting to get out of hand, you should consider meeting up with a professional to fix the issue.
We all want to put an end to the bickering. Here is how you can do it:
- When you feel the urge to bicker about something, just name the issue mentally and state the obvious fact. It will calm you down.
- Try to make sure and question yourself whether this matter is really pertinent in your life or not. If not, then do not waste time by bickering about it.
- Try to listen to what your partner has to say. Consider his or her opinion in an argument and think carefully whether following their suggestion would cause much trouble or not. Making a little compromise is never bad in a relationship. By this time, you will surely reach a more rational state of mind when you will be capable of thinking calmly.
Bickering will surely leave your lives if you bear these points in mind!
