I saw this article about couples that argue, have great relationships…utter BS!

I’m sorry, what???

As I was scrolling through Facebook the other day I happened upon an article that touted the greatness of having arguments with your significant other and how they built a better relationship.  The more vocal and volatile the better.  Now don’t get me wrong, communication is good but this is not the greatest form of communication.  Effective communication is what builds strong, lasting relationships.

During arguments, communication is often aimed- not at getting a point across- but being heard.  Each side just wants to be heard and no one is really listening because they are both trying so hard to be heard.  This is when (in reality) arguing should stop.  Each should go to their respective corner and come out when they understand they should listen to each other.  That is when communication will take place.  It won’t take place in the heat of an argument.  Try it next time you want to get your point across.

Til next time- Live life positively
