There are so many things you should not say when fighting with your partner! There will always be fights. This is what helps build your relationship for the better. Communication is key during fights but watch what you say, because it could make things worse. During an argument, try to avoid these 7 things you should not say when fighting with your partner.
1. Swear Words Are a No- No!
Curse words are probably the most effective way to show someone you are very angry, but they are the most important to avoid out of all the things you should not say when fighting with your partner. Once you throw in one of those curse words into the argument, the other person automatically becomes defensive and throws one back at you, and it just goes downhill from there. Try to avoid saying them as they will make things worse.
Who here hates hearing the word "whatever" when you’re trying to get a point across? Yeah, I am pretty sure we all do! Running away from the argument by saying "whatever" might be an easy way out of it, but not only does it make it worse, it does not solve anything.
This is probably the worst out of all things you shouldn’t use in a fight. Just like the dreaded "whatever," being sarcastic does not solve anything it just makes things worse. Think about it, how would you like it if your partner was being sarcastic during a fight? I’ve been in a relationship, where there was never a time he was never sarcastic during a fight that could have made our relationship better. In the end, it just made things worse. Make sure you watch out for sarcasm no matter how tempting it is.
4. I Give up
A fight with your partner eventually makes you two stronger. Saying you give up prevents that from happening. If you truly love your partner, fight for them by fighting with them. What I mean by that is, don’t just walk out, and close the door on your partner. Stay and work things out even if it means fighting through an argument. Don’t just say you give up so easily.
5. It’s All Your Fault!
Blaming each other get you nowhere. Instead of trying to fix what you were fighting about, it will just turn into a game of whose fault is it. Avoiding the blame game will definitely bring out the good during a fight.
6. You Shouldn’t/should
Bringing up the past is a must to avoid during a fight. The past is the past for a reason, so try to focus on the present — focus on what you are fighting about NOW instead of bringing up things from the past.
7. I’m Fine (Not Really)
Lying about how you feel is one of the worst things you can do during an argument with your partner. This LITERALLY gets you nowhere. You are not really fixing anything by lying about how you are feeling during a fight. The best thing to do is be honest no matter how hurtful it can be.
Fighting with the one person you really love can be horrible, but saying the wrong things can make it worse. The tips above are some of the things you should avoid saying during an argument. How you ever been in a fight where one wrong word made it worse than it should have been? How did you handle it?
