Fighting without Wounding
Learning to realize you are both doing your best in an imperfect world, even if one is slacking off, only takes a little kindness to help shift yourselves back on track and is so important to supporting a good, loving partnership. Everyone that loves someone is bound to fight with them about something. All we have the power over is the way we conduct ourselves in fights, don't allow others to push buttons you know you'll regret later. Love and life is so much about shifting ideas and allowing room for change and understanding. Fighting in a fair and honest way will only lead to a better life, to happier relationships and a more peaceful inter-self.
What is fair fighting?
Fair fighting is about keeping the fight about the subject at hand and on topic with the goal to help resolve the problem. Going over old subjects or getting mean won't help you win the fight and it will all but guarantee the demise of your relationship.
