Decide what behaviors you're comfortable with and stick to them. Compromise when needed but don't let anxiety rule decisions.
Take a few deep breaths if a discussion gets heated. This stops rash words and gives space to think clearly before responding.
Hear your partner out fully before defending yourself. See things from their view to find the real issue beneath surface words.
Acknowledge how your actions made them feel without admitting fault. This helps them feel heard so tensions ease.
If you were wrong, own up to it sincerely. Work together on solutions both find fair. United front ends conflicts.
Small consistent efforts like following through on promises help reassure each other. This strengthens the relationship.
For persistent issues, consider counseling to learn healthy habits. A third party perspective provides new insights.
