Clue No. 5

Don't worry, the beasts here can't hurt you!

Healthy Relationship Tip No. 5

A major stumbling block in any relationship is settling disagreements, which often reduce to emotional shouting matches rather than caring problem-solving. Basic ground rules for effectively facing conflict in a relationship include:

  • Maintain a spirit of good will – remember: you care about this person.
  • Avoid attacking on another – discuss behavior, not personalities.
  • Share your feelings – explore and discuss them.
  • Focus on the present – past disappointments cannot be changed. Concentrate on here and now.
