Active listening entails paying attention to your partner, comprehending their point of view, and repeating what they have said to ensure you have understood correctly.
Instead of blaming or attacking your partner, use "I" statements to express how you are feeling. "I feel hurt when you don't listen to me," for example, rather than "You never listen to me."
Instead of dwelling on the problem, concentrate on finding a solution that works for both of you. Come up with a plan that you and your partner can both agree on.
If the conflict becomes too intense, it is acceptable to take a break and return to the conversation when both of you are feeling more calm and collected.
Try to put yourself in your partner's shoes and understand how they are feeling. This can assist you in approaching the situation with greater compassion and understanding
Words like "always" and "never" can make your partner feel attacked and defensive. Avoid using absolutes and instead concentrate on the specific behavior that is causing the conflict.
It is critical to accept responsibility for your actions and to apologize as needed. Instead of blaming your partner, consider how you can collaborate to find a solution.
