Managing conflict and power

Leave a comment

In my slightly still new relationship of three months it has been very beneficial to us to provide each other with maximum communication in all of our feelings and thoughts that may concern one another. Daniel, my boyfriend, and I have established a really strong basis of talking and expressing. A few months into our relationship we had our first fight and we decided to discuss all of our relationship and feelings in the situation we were in. In this first fight we were having we had both done things wrong towards each other and both had feelings that we wanted to express towards one another. The conflict we were in enabled us to express to each other all kinds of emotions, thoughts and feelings that we never would have been open enough to express if not in the conflict we were in. Being able to tell each other all of our thoughts and feelings in complete openness with the situation we were in made it easier for us to open up and express all kinds of things that we usually wouldn’t have discussed. This allowed us to have a much better understanding of where we were at in our relationship and how we were feeling and opened our relationship up a lot more than before. We were then able to talk about everything else more easily and openly therefore improving our relationship a lot.
