Love more, fight less.
Relationships are tricky. It’s essentially two people with very distinct and complex personalities trying to coexist with one another. It’s guaranteed to always be a rollercoaster of feelings and emotions when you get into a loving relationship with someone. Yes, you love one another. You share a few laughs here and there. You push one another to be better. You challenge each other. You try your best to have each other’s backs. And sometimes, you fight each other. It happens. Arguments happen. Conflicts are inevitable and it’s okay if you have a few fights here and there. No couples are going to be immune to the occasional disagreement or misunderstanding. It doesn’t how obsessed you are with loving each other. You are going to fight every once in a while.
When you love a person unconditionally, you would never feel like you have to suppress who you really are. You would never have to feel like you have to censor yourself or hide your true feelings. When you are in a healthy and loving relationship with someone, you will always be comfortable with expressing yourself honestly and openly. You will always feel like you would never shy away from letting your partner know what’s on your mind no matter how controversial it may be. This is a necessary aspect of building a relationship. Couples must always be propagating an environment of openness and honesty with one another. Not all fights in relationships are bad. It all just matters with how couples approach these fights and arguments. And the strongest couples are the ones who are able to bounce back from an argument stronger than ever before. Fights have a way of temporarily driving a wedge between two people, but also bringing them much closer in the long haul.
Fights and disagreements are natural facets of any relationship and we should all be expecting them whenever we fall in love with someone. They’re unavoidable and it would be foolish to think otherwise. You just have to make sure that the both of you organize your conflict in a way that the both of you can manage; in a way that isn’t detrimental to your relationship. And once you’re ready to make peace, you have to go all out with your affection as well. If you need some ideas on how you can approach making up with your partner, then you can go ahead and read on until the end of this list.
1. Write a love letter for your partner.
Love letters are old school but they’re effective. You don’t have to be Shakespearean with how you write your letter. You just have to be honest. Remind your partner of your love for one another and work your way back to a place of peace.
2. Initiate a deep and meaningful talk with your partner.
Sometimes, just talking things out can solve any problem in a relationship. It’s just a matter of swallowing your pride and actually taking the initiative to have that conversation.
3. Give your partner a warm hug.
A hug is a like a cup of hot chocolate for the heart. Never underestimate the power of physical intimacy in a relationship. A hug is very innocent and simple, but it has great emotional depth and meaning.
4. Cook something nice for your partner.
Sometimes, the best way to a person’s heart is through the stomach. That’s why it makes sense for you to cook something nice up for your partner if you want to make peace again. It’s more effective when you cook up their favorite food.
To get back to a place of peace, another effective method is just reminding yourselves of the happy memories and the best moments that you’ve shared together. Just thinking about these moments will be enough to rebuild your affection for one another.
6. Initiate sexy time.
Remember how physical intimacy should never be underestimated? Take that tip to the next level by actually initiating some sexy time with your partner. Sometimes, a good old love-making session will be enough for you to just forget about your differences for a while and get you hack to a place of safety and intimacy.
7. Buy your partner a meaningful sorry gift.
Go ahead and treat your partner to something. Swallow your pride and give your partner a peace offering. Buy them something meaningful that you know would make them really happy. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but it has to be meaningful.
8. Put your favorite song on the stereo and start to dance with each other.
Any day without dancing is a day wasted. Music is very therapeutic and so just go ahead and put your favorite song on the stereo and let your hips do the talking. Ask your partner to dance and just be silly with one another.
