Yesterday, we looked into the wrong approach to managing marital conflict, which includes avoidance, transferring, malice, outburst, playing the blame game, and the rest, all of which must be avoided if commitment will take root in any marital relationship.
However, there are right approaches to resolving marital conflict, one of which involves assertive communication. Assertive communication is a process of communication in which painful emotions are released by the offended party without using negative words toward the other party.
Contrary to popular opinion, a genuine conflict resolution process is always initiated by the offended, not the offender.
Has your partner offended you? Reach out to him or her in love and see the difference.
