3 Moves to Restore Peace after a Fight
If you’re anything like I was, some fights come up in your relationship more often than a hit song plays on Top 40 radio.
You don’t want to have the same fight over and over, but it keeps happening.
You’re just talking about the leftovers from dinner and next thing you know, your mother–who isn’t present–is involved, and you and your man are both yelling things you would be embarrassed to repeat.
You wonder why he has to yell and get so upset when the conversation was originally about Tupperware.
It makes you question whether this relationship is even sustainable because it’s so draining and painful to have these blow-ups. And so distracting from the things you were planning to do because you keep replaying the fight in your head and thinking of ways to let him have it.
Happily, you don’t have to stay stuck in wall-to-wall hostility or a week-long cold war.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about 3 moves to restore peace after a fight:
- I’ll share how to inspire apologies and handholding.
- Twice a year we host a free Adored Wife Challenge, where we all experiment with applying the 6 Intimacy Skills™ together every day for five days. As part of our Challenge, I interviewed Alison, who was so inspiring and authentic that I knew I wanted you, dear podcast listener, to hear what she did to make her marriage last. So we asked her permission, and Alison agreed to let me share it with you! She’s going to reveal what she did so you can do the same things to make your marriage thrive.
- The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week is part 2 from an article on how to get your husband to take out the garbage, guaranteed to kill the romance and make you sound like a condescending, nagging kidney stone of a person.
Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me returned.
I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.
