Are You Fighting Enough With Your Partner?

Tune Up Tuesday!  In addition to hosting this morning show, I work in the afternoons as a therapist and on Tuesday mornings, I share little nuggets you might be able to use to “tune up” your relationship.  This morning, you ever hear people say… “oh we never fight?”  If you know people who say that about their relationship, or maybe you’re in a relationship like that… what not fighting may really mean.

While frequent arguments aren’t indicative of a healthy relationship, neither is the absence of them.  It could mean one of you is detached and numb to sharing your concerns.  Part of having a healthy relationship is expressing your needs.  When you have a disagreement, you’re telling your partner that you’re not OK with something…and you’re trying to find a solution because you care.  If you don’t care, you’re much less likely to have disagreements.

As a couple’s therapist, the goal is to give you healthy ways to have those disagreements…which can actually lead to growth and connection between the two of you.
