No Relationship Is Perfect

No Relationship Is Perfect

There are always tough times in our lives and correspondingly in our relationships. There would be times when your partner would be upset on something. No matter what the reason would be behind your partner’s bad mood, but in any case, it is you who has to deal with it maturely and lighten the situation. There are couples who are not able to handle such situation and thus more problems start in their relationship. However, if you can keep control over your speech and manage the situation, you would help your partner come out of his/her uncomfortable situation. At the same time, it is also not advisable to keep quiet and talk nothing with your partner. Here are few things you should avoid saying to your partner:

1. Never say you had a worse day than your partner

If your partner is upset, he/she is upset because there is something serious going on in their mind. Instead of accusing about his/her behavior of not able to handle the situation, try to know calmly what is in your partner’s mind and offer help if possible.

2. Don’t behave super – Insensitive

The idea is to not behave rudely insensitive. No matter how petty the issue could be behind your partner’s bad mood, but if you show or say that you are least interested to know what’s bothering him/her, then you surely will aggravate the issue and upset your partner even more.

3. Extreme silence might be misinterpreted

If you leave the room without hearing, acknowledging and saying something, this would be another form of showing that you don’t care for what your partner is going through. This will add to your partner’s problems and in return yours too.

4. Don’t offer any solution just for the heck of it

Few of us have the habbit of jumping guns. Specially, when it comes to dealing with our partner, we take them for granted. We offer solution much before we actually understand the problem. Rest assured that if you offer any solution without completely listening to your partner, it will make things worse for him and you would in no way be helping your partner.

5. It’s not really a big deal

Don't Make Things Worst By saying The Wrong Thing

Don’t Make Things Worst By saying The Wrong Thing

By saying this, you are making sure to belittle your partner’s reason for which he/she is upset. You may be a more mature person that your partner and may handle the situation better, but do not demean the way your partner is dealing with it. Instead, listen to them sincerely and patiently. Most of the times, just a patient listening would do the magic.

Not everything that could upset your partner would be genuine enough to prolong his bad mood. Sometimes, it is just the energy level which goes down and people start feeling low and upset consequently. Apart from avoiding certain kind of speech with your partner, you should also stand by them when they are a little disturbed and support them. After all, your partner would look up to no one else other than you when he/she is upset and need someone as a moral support.
