I am about to divulge in you, the most valuable piece of relationship advice that you will ever receive. Are you sitting down?
When you find yourself in a serious relationship, always make sure to pick and choose your battles. That doesn’t mean pick up your arms and head out to the battlefield, that means that when you find yourself in a disagreement with your partner, make a conscious and well thought out decision as to whether or not this particular topic is WORTH fighting over. There are a multitude of topics worth going tooth and nail for, but the others are just pointless. To fight over these is unproductive, and will only result in a bunch of unnecessary hurt feelings.
If you find that this newest argument isn’t worth the time it would take to fight over, then bite your damn tongue; literally if that’s what it takes! Do whatever you’ve got to do, but make sure that you don’t stoop down to their level. Hold your cards and keep them close. You may find that you’ll need that ammunition down the road.
Well, there you go; my relationship advice for the week. Do YOU have any advice that you would like to add?
