6 Statements That You Should Never Say To Your Partner During A Fight
Stop saying these things
Have you ever been in an argument only to utter words that make you go like, “Dang! I shouldn’t have said that!”
Relationships are complicated; it’s never a walk in the park. Show me any perfect relationship and I will gladly make a case study TODAY for the world to see. Arguments are perfectly normal but when is it too much. Hurtful words are damaging; more so the soul.
Here are 6 statements that you should never subject your partner to:
1. Comparing your lover to someone else
This is a no go-zone. Don’t be tempted to do this because it is hurtful. If you keep comparing, it shows you don’t have good decision making skills because it implies that you are currently with someone who you think is flawed.
2. Hinting to your partner that you were warned about him/her prior to the relationship
Pulling out phrases that prove you discuss your partner with your parents or friends only makes your partner distrustful and suspicious. Don’t make someone else feel like they have to live up to other people. Let them be themselves.
3. Correcting your better half’s grammar while in an argument
This has to be the funniest and worst thing you can do. When someone is angry they are likely to say anything, your partner could easily speak like they are on drugs! There is a time and place to correct someone’s grammar but surely not in the heat of the moment.
4. Hurtful labels or name calling
If a certain name hurts your partner, don’t use it. Your partner will harbor distrust if you do this.
5. Throwing your partner’s weight or physical appearance under the bus
In the heat of an argument, never comment about anything regarding your partner’s physical appearance or weight. It destroys your partner’s self-esteem because they look up to you and it could affect your future relationship should you get back together.
6. “I hate you” phrase
Whoever said, “There is a thin line between love and hate” wasn’t too far off from the truth. However, you shouldn’t confuse anger and disagreements for hate. You do not want a situation where you blurt out damn words such as “hate” because your relationship will become like a sinking ship. Just be cool, watch your words and try to be reasonable.
