How to Quickly Diffuse a Conflict
We are always so quick to judge and defend that we never give our spouse a chance to explain the real reason behind the conflict. We had some minor conflict last week and because I stopped and really listened to the “why” behind the frustration and validated it, it was quickly diffused.
It’s all about perspective. We are desperately trying to get our partner to see things from our point of view but how well do you try and see their perspective? It’s amazing when you stop, really listen, and respond from a place of understanding rather than just frustration.
