4 thing to do when your relationship turns sour

Published

on

Relationships are hard things to maintain. Two people loving one another isn’t enough to sustain a relationship; a relationship is about how well two people work together.

You need to work well as a team, be able to communicate, and, in most serious relationships, be able to live together without tearing each other’s hair out.

There’s far more to keeping a relationship alive than caring about one another.

You need to both be ready to put in effort, listen to each other, and even compromise  so as to makes both of you happy. You’re both still individuals, after all.

Here are some tips on what you could do if your relationship starts to turn sour.

1, Examine the root of your arguments

Arguing has most likely been a core part of this rocky patch in your relationship. There are different levels to this; you may have occasionally bickered due to stress and then quickly resolved the issue, or you may find yourselves locked in a heated, never-ending debate. Obviously, the latter is worse. Arguing about the same things over and over again is a sign that you’re not moving forward, and relationships need to overcome obstacles rather than freezing in front of them.

2. Figure out if you both want the same thing

This is the question you need to ask yourself. If you think there’s any chance of resolution within the relationship then your partner has to believe the same thing. You need to think about the bond you and your partner have; if you’re arguing or you’re distant but you both feel great pain over things being that way then that’s a clear sign that you both want things to change.

3. Know when to get help if things become toxic

You have a support network outside of your relationship: family, friends, and other loved ones. It’s essential that you talk to those people if the relationship is getting bad; especially if you feel as if your partner doesn’t want you to talk to your loved ones. Executen’t let yourself feel isolated. Acquire an outside opinion on your situation if you’re lost. If things have become also toxic or the fighting has become physical then you might want to look into a domestic violence attorney.

4. Figure out whether you’re looking forwards or backwards

You need to look over all the issues within your relationship and figure out whether you and your partner are working to resolve them. Are you moving forwards? Communication is key to figuring this out. You need to both be actively listening to one another if you want to overcome your problems. If you both of you focus solely on listening then neither of you will have to fight to “be heard” when it’s your turn to speak. If you’re both still trying then there’s still hope.

The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. —Maxime Lagacé
