To overcome a crisis of couple can be achieved thanks to the respect, the dialogue, to look for moments of affection and also time for each one of the parts, separately.
All couples have some crisis throughout their relationship and although they can be repeated, the truth is that if we know how to overcome the first, we can learn and thus prevent more happening or know how to fix the situation more easily.
Let’s see a step-by-step guide in which we will explain how to overcome a couple’s crisis.
Couple crises can happen for different reasons, so before we see the steps to take to overcome it, we need to know what has been the reason why our partner seems to be on the verge of breaking up. On the other hand, a couple’s crisis can only be overcome if both parties want and wish to move forward. There’s no point in solving crises if there’s still a grudge against either of us.
Steps to Overcoming a Couple Crisis
There are several key points that we are going to have to touch in order to know what steps we have to take to overcome a couple crisis.
- Not to impose, but to dialogue, to reach a consensus. One of the first steps to overcome a couple’s crisis is to stop arguing in order to understand who is right, and to do so in order to explain our motivations in a logical way. We need to concentrate more on the present than on remembering the past, let alone setting an example.
- Understand that it is normal to disagree from time to time. This should be seen as a positive “challenge” to find common ground rather than conflict.
- Thank your partner and let them know that we appreciate their efforts to improve our relationship. Small gestures, a kiss, a hug, a caress, a smile or a moment dedicated only to him/her can be more important and more powerful than shameless gestures with the sole intention of doing harm.
- If we have to criticize something we don’t like, it’s always better to do it against a certain behavior, rather than against the person. Emphasize that it’s what you don’t like about what you’ve done, rather than making it personal and blaming or insulting your partner. Respect is essential for a good coexistence.
- Talk to your partner and establish a priori that, if a discussion becomes violent, it is best to abandon it to reflect individually and find a solution to the problem. When you are more relaxed, try to approach the problem patiently and through dialogue: only through understanding and compromise will you come to an agreement.
- Strive to listen, look into each other’s eyes, try to understand each other’s world, their experiences, their worries and fears.
- Look for common activities that allow you to share time in a way that is enjoyable for both of you. Accept the dynamism of the relationship without trying to be a copy of others.
- Don’t suffocate him with messages and calls, but you have to respect his spaces. True love is born of freedom.
- And above all, spend time alone with yourself, without your partner. Remember who you are and why that person fell in love with you one day.
