Therapy Tip #1.
When you and your partner are discussing something and it turns into an argument; someone needs to call a time out. You have 24 hours to get back to addressing the issue. Usually the one who called the time out is the one to readdress the topic. Using humor is always helpful, “Well that didn’t go very well did it!” By now you should know how you feel, what you want, what you could have done differently and you can say it in a calm tone.
