Surviving Conflict

Surviving conflict in intimate relationships, including marriage.During the last couple of weeks, we’ve been talking “survival.”  First, I talked surviving separation.  Then, last week, I covered surviving infidelity.

This week, I cover surviving conflict.

Conflict can slowly eat away at the connection of a relationship.  The more fights and arguments you have — especially when no progress or resolution is found — the weaker the connection becomes.

For many, conflict has become habitual.  And some believe that the conflict is “just our way of communicating.”  But it is caustic and hurtful.

So, how DO you survive conflict?  Learn to face it differently.  Learn to do it differently.  And learn how to turn the useless sparring into useful progress.
