(1/3) “2. Timing
This is a big one! There’s often one person who feels they must talk through a conflict AS SOON AS IT HAPPENS. It sort of burns inside them, and there’s an urgency to handle it immediately. For the other person, they prefer stepping back, and taking a few hours (maybe even days) to process the conflict before discussing it. I believe it’s so important to deny yourself for the person in the relationship that needs that extra time. Although it feels urgent, I’d rather wait until my spouse is fully engaged and ready, and then talk. If i don’t, I’ll talk his head off and he will be silent, still in processing mode, which will in turn make me more upset that he isn’t as “present.” If I wait until he’s ready to talk, we are both present and able to pose our opinions in a healthy, thought out way. And the best part- the discussion is typically handled within minutes!”
