In today’s weekly video Dear Sybersue talks about how to deal with your partner’s moods in your relationship.
We all have good days and bad days but it is how we handle those days that will keep our partnership stable and strong. Constant mood swings can be a deal breaker for many men and women.
It is hard enough dealing with all of life’s trials and tribulations, so having a safe place to come home to is very important for a couple in a partnership. When someone is “out of sorts” or feeling unbalanced it causes an unhealthy vibration within the relationship.
Walking on egg shells to appease someone’s emotional state can be very taxing and take a toll on your own self-esteem. We all want our partner’s to be happy, but being around constant turmoil will eventually affect both people in the relationship.
It is important not to “mirror these moods” you are feeling from your partner but to find a way to help dissipate them so they don’t escalate into bigger problems down the road. Listen, validate and respect what your partner has to say but if it is becoming a toxic environment for you to come home to, they may need to seek outside help.
No one wants to be with someone who is constantly moody or emotionally shut down so don’t let things go for too long before you get to the root of the problem.
Always communicate openly with each other.
