1/6Do you think before you speak?
Everyone goes through those not-so-good moments in a relationship and end up uttering a few lines in a fit of rage that they regret later. The person might not mean what they said but those words have the potential to scar the relationship for a long time. Been there, done that? Well, practising this easy three-second trick can stop you from saying things that can be ignored in the heat of the moment and in turn, can help to resolve issues with a logical approach. Here you go…
2/6Who introduced this concept?
The famous actor Craig Ferguson introduced this concept of ‘three-second trick’. He listed down three questions and asking these to yourself before blurting anything to your partner will save you from an unwanted argument. In fact, this trick would help you to hold a meaningful conversation with your significant other and eventually help to strengthen your relationship.
4/6The second question
The next question to ask yourself is “Does this need to be said by me?” You might not always be the best person to talk on every topic. Maybe your partner turns defensive when some topics are broached and involving their best friend might help them to open up. Maybe, you need to think from their perspective and avoid criticising them.
