We've all been in an argument where we are so sure we're right. We'll go to great lengths to stand our ground and prove that we are right and our partner is wrong. News flash, this is not helpful for our relationships. Learn the tools to defuse a situation where you or your partner thinks they are right and an argument begins.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Recognizing that when we argue we often go away from the content of the argument and go toward feelings.
  • How to go beneath the content of an argument to discover the trigger for the conflict.
  • Why arguments often begin with the relationship we have with ourselves and not our partner.
  • How to wait and have a productive conversation when we're not in an escalated emotional state.
  • Validating your partners feelings to have a productive conversation and create a stronger relationship.
  • And much more!
