Monitor your mouth: if you’re hot and angry, take a walk, a break, bite your tongue before you say something you’ll want to take back by the time you slip beneath the covers. Formulate a deliberate response and don’t assume your partner had an evil intent.
Keep a box in your memory that has an auto erase function. Chuck conflicts in it so they don’t play on repeat every time there is a confrontation. Keep to the topic at hand.
