Perhaps one of the most significant issues in marital conflict and dissatisfaction is that we simply don’t recognize our own contributions to the problems. We justify, ignore, avoid or distract ourselves from taking responsibility for our own actions and negative behaviors. To deal with conflict and the deeper issues, a willingness to look at yourself and your responses are needed.
Healthy communication is possible for your relationship. Make a choice to get in touch with how conflict and anger affect you. Learn how to respond and look inward in times of conflict. It will help you overcome anger and destructive behaviors to help you come to a resolution in your relationship.
In relationships we can be quick to point fingers. We have all heard the saying, “when you point your finger at someone else, there are 3 pointing back at you.” We need to be ok with looking in the mirror to build a healthy marriage.
