Take a moment before you speak
We all can be jealous, reactive or overly sensitive. And within the definition of any of those words is irrational. Often we feel a strong, negative emotion towards our partner when they haven’t technically done anything wrong. Stable couples pause to recognize, “Is it really my partner’s fault that his boss made him work late? Is it really my partner’s fault that that girl wrote on his Facebook wall?” They take a step back to evaluate where (if any) blame should be directed. And resist the urge to take out their emotions on their partner.
