Love Wars: Is Fighting Ever a GOOD Thing For a Relationship?

No Yelling

This is hard to do when two people are arguing. In fact, that’s usually how people know they’re in an argument…because someone is screaming or yelling. Take it down a notch and speak in a calm voice. I know it’s easier said than done when passion and anger are involved, but once someone starts yelling, no one is being heard. All there is is noise. If you find yourself in an argument and the other person raises his or her voice, keep yours calm. That may help bring them down a decibel or two. If they continue to scream, suggest that you both continue the conversation at another time when both of you can use your inside voices. This way you don’t react by yelling and the situation doesn’t escalate – and your neighbors don’t call the cops. Keeping a soft voice and tone helps you both to focus on the issue, not the noise.
