My partner and I have gone through our fair share of quarrels and disputes.
From politics to money to parenting...
I've got plenty of skelatons in my closet about things I've said to my husband during heated arguments. I'm not proud of all of my behaviors throughout the years.
But our fights sent me on a life-long journey to master crucial skills to my life: Conflict resolution, self awareness and non-violent communication.
I used to feel deflated, defeated and depressed after an argument. Now I feel proud and hopeful.
It's not that we never fight anymore - it's that we've established our rules of engagement, we've learned to move through the 3 stages of fights with relative ease and we've learned to use our fights to deepen our connection. And that's what I want for you too.
