Think before you act
Whatever it is that is bothering you about your partner, at least give a few minutes to think it out before saying anything to them. Give yourself time to calm down and rationally think about the issue. And if you do decide on having words with them than make sure that you tone down on the harsh words that had first popped into your mind.

Think from their perspective
This one is true for all situations in life but especially so in a domestic set-up. Instead of attacking them verbally, put yourself in their shoes and try to figure out whether they did something deliberately to hurt you or by mistake. Trust us, if everyone started trying this, there won’t be any fights.
If you fear that if you talk to your partner right now you may get into a huge fight that you will definitely regret later on then it is better to get busy doing something else. You could go for a walk, go shopping, listen to music, talk to a friend, or anything else you enjoy. This will distract you and you may decide that you were only making a mountain out of a mole hill. We’re, by no means, saying that you should forget about the issue, only that you should have a healthy conversation with your partner once you have calmed down. Yelling and abusing will not help solve your problems.

Think about what you love about him/her
Okay, so your partner makes you really mad sometimes but we’re sure he/she has their positives. When you feel like you’ve had enough, think about the things your spouse does that you absolutely adore. Reminding yourself about their positives will keep you in the right frame of mind.
We know that the issue needs to be addressed but do that when you’ve calmed down. Talk rationally and try to explain how you feel. Don’t become overly-emotional and do listen to their point of view as well. Also, don’t start discussing past mistakes. Just focus on the present and if your partner starts playing the blame game, stop them right there and then. Stay on track and keep the discussion short and sweet.
