Whether you can’t or won’t address the underlying problems, the best thing for both of you is to make a clean break of it.discussion about the matter, possibly even a full-blown fight with all the awkwardness and emotional distress that entails… Maybe they’re trying to keep control in the most passive-aggressive way possible. Many people linger in broken or flatlining relationships because they’re looking for something they can point to as a reason to leave.Of course, not all conflicts in relationships look like fights.Sometimes those conflicts are the absence of progress, where no matter what you do, But no matter whether you’re calm and rational, heated and emotional or anywhere in between, it doesn’t make a difference.It doesn’t matter if making your needs clear will result in a fight; avoiding or ending a conflict doesn’t actually make a relationship stronger if nothing is resolved and frankly, some fights to happen.
