Strategies to Speak Clearly During Relationship Disputes 

Stay Calm and Collected

Take Deep Breaths: When you feel yourself becoming overwhelmed, take a moment to breathe deeply. Deep breaths help reduce stress and allow you to collect your thoughts.


Use "I" Statements

: Instead of saying, "You always do this," say, "I feel hurt when this happens." Using "I" statements helps you express your feelings without accusing your partner, making them more likely to listen and understand your perspective.

Take Breaks if Necessary 

If the argument becomes too heated, it's okay to take a break. Tell your partner that you need some time to cool off and revisit the discussion later when you're both calmer.


Give Your Full Attention  Practice Active Listening

Ask Clarifying Questions 

If you don't understand something your partner said, ask clarifying questions to gain a better understanding. This shows that you are engaged and interested in their point of view.

Avoid Blame Avoid Interrupting
