You make me angry, but I still love you! How many times do you want to say this to your loved one?
Psychologist Suzanne Phillips say if you are human and you are in a relationship it is inevitable that at times you will be angry with your partner.
“I often suggest to couples that if you never hear the neighbors fighting, it probably means that they have moved or that you should call 911.”
To her, the goal in sustaining a vibrant and loving relationship is not to prevent authentic differences, feelings and disagreements, but to express them in a way that does not escalate into anger that threatens the emotional or physical well-being of either partner.
Complying at all times, fear of making waves, hiding resentments, or equating every disagreement to the inevitable break-up is emotionally exhausting and anxiety producing. If it is not safe to be angry in a relationshipit is not a safe relationship.”
