Avoid name calling

If you're going to argue, make sure your words are worth something. As tempting as name calling is, there are plenty of other ways to vent your anger that don't risk irreparable damage to your relationship.

Explain EXACTLY why you're angry

This seems pretty obvious, but in the heat of the moment it's near impossible to see the situation from the other person's side. Avoid assumptions, and make sure you listen to their side too.

Know when to walk away from confrontation

If an argument is going around in circles, or it's becoming more heated, know when to walk away. Taking a moment or even a couple of days to calm and reflect can help lead to resolution.

Don't lose sight of the bigger picture

You're arguing because you care about that other person. They've done something to annoy or hurt you, or vice versa, and that's not possible if people don't care about each other. Try to remember this, but don't make peace for the sake of it.

Know when confrontation is getting taken too far

If you are EVER physically abused or emotionally blackmailed, you need to assess if this relationship is worth fighting for. You may love your partner, but if they can treat you cruelly, can you really say they feel the same about you?

Write a letter

If trying to talk it out is getting nowhere, try writing a letter to your partner to explain it all. This is a great way to communicate, as a letter can't be interrupted midsentence and you're more likely to be able to explain yourself more clearly, as you've had time to think.
