#Relationships- How to deal with disagreements?

2By Shahzeen Shivdasani

Sometimes in relationships you are faced with situations where the two of you can’t seem to meet ‘eye to eye’. You wonder how the both of you can be so alike in so many ways and different in others. You find it impossible to fathom how your other half just can’t seem to understand where your point of view is coming from. Here is a list of what you can do to ensure both parties are satisfied:

  • Respect Each Other: You both have to understand that no matter how alike you are; you both are your own entities. You need to respect the other person’s viewpoint as it is what makes them who they are. They do not need to mirror you in every view.
  • Communicate– Explain to each other where your viewpoint is coming from. Instead of fighting and having endless arguments of not feeling understood, take the time to express your concerns to each other in a calm manner.
  • Compromise– Try to reach a common ground. If you both feel differently on a certain issue try to reach a compromise that will keep you both be happy.
  • Be YOU– If none of the above work you need to keep in mind that you can’t change someone.  If it is a topic that you hold close to your heart then you have to explain to your partner that this topic means that much to you. Love isn’t about always getting your way. Sometimes you have to let the other person grow in the way they might need to at that time. At the end of the day, the only person you can really be, is YOU.
