17. If you’ve just had a huge fight
Sometimes picking up the pieces after an argument is not possible, so you should concentrate on other things in order to overcome the issue.
Allow your partner to calm down, and then have an open conversation about what motivated the argument. Give them the chance to tell their side of the story, and then talk about yours. Share your point of view as honestly as possible, otherwise, you won’t manage to move on.
According to Zofia Czajkowska, PhD, and psychologist and relationship specialist in Montreal, “Being open and honest about one’s thoughts and intentions about the relationship itself and the future can restore — or newly create — a sense of safety.”
