There are some people who are able to make up after a conflict and have no animosity between them. They are able to go back to business as usual once both parties have apologized and forgiven one another. Some people though, remain in a resentment state that they never fully recover from. You could avoid the situation, but that will just make it worse in the long run. It’s best to write down what you are currently doing and think of ways that you can move past it.
- One of the easiest ways that you can get past a conflict with your partner is simply by giving them space and allowing them to calm down.
- Take steps to repair your relationship and get past the conflict by apologizing and forgiving or creating a compromise.
- Learn to appreciate your partners perspective and respect their opinion. You can also get past a conflict by realizing it’s not worth your time.
“However, as the researchers point out, what couples do in the minutes after a conflict may be quite different from the conflict resolution behaviors they attempt hours or days later.”
