Don’t Go To The Extreme
When you’re mad sometimes your first instinct can be an extreme overreaction, especially as it relates to a relationship. During the first fight with your man resist the urge to go to the extreme and do something foolish like permanently ending the relationship.
It’s a fight, it happens to the best of couples, so there is no need to let your anger rule over you to the point that you end something that is really special. Instead, take a step back and assess what you’re actually fighting about and go from there.
