Don’t you just hate that silence that follows up an argument? Isn’t it quite frustrating? The argument is over, but the tension persists which gives a very awkward and irritating feeling. Sometimes you just feel helpless and confused. You keep on taking wild guesses regarding your partner’s moods and feelings. At times the situation becomes so awful that neither of you wants to make the first move nor even want to make an eye contact. But at the same time deep down in your heart, you miss that person badly, and this awkward silence makes you go insane.
Awkward silence right after the argument can spoil your relationship and can manage to create even extreme distances. Therefore, resolving and fixing problems at the earliest can save our relationship from being so tensed and getting ruined. By practicing the following mentioned tips can be helpful in avoiding the awkward tension after an argument.
Try to avoid arguing in the first place
Sometimes the arguments are based on such silly situations that even after some days if we try to remember what exactly it was, we find ourselves completely blank.
Do not indulge yourself into an aggression at once. Firstly listen to your partner’s point of view humbly and later on you can give your piece of mind. Do not overreact. Try to settle down everything sensibly and respectfully.
Do not hold the grudge and let it go
Tension is created after the argument and most of the time we sit alone and try to justify our side. We should always think with a positive mindset and should also consider our partner’s opinion. If something is left to be said during the argument, just let it go. Keeping grudges inside will hurt you and it will also have an adverse impact on your relationship and will generate further problems in future as well.
Overanalyzing the argument will create a mess
Often after an argument, we feel to justify our behavior and reactions, examine the causes of the disagreements and misunderstandings. But it should be done to a certain limit. Going beyond will be the beginning of another argument. We need to clarify our misunderstandings rather than ending up in another fight and argument.
Accept the misunderstandings and the cause of disagreements. If there is no need to discuss any further, then please don’t and break the awkward silence to return to your routine as early as possible.
Make a real show of affection
After a long argument with excessive usage of words, forgive and forget by displaying a gesture of love. By showing your love and affection will wipe put the misunderstandings very quickly and easily.
Admit where you are wrong and apologize
We often say such things in the heat of the moment that we regret later on. The majority of the arguments arose when we misunderstood the intentions of our partner. Throughout the argument we criticize and blame our partner, now it is time to sit and analyze ourselves.
Accept your mistake. There is no harm in admitting and apologizing.
Happiness in any relationship should be kept on priority. What’s the point of prolonging the arguments? It only creates tension, mess up your mood and if dragged a long way along, spoils the relationships as well.
