While being in love is awesome, relationships aren't just rainbows, sunshine, and heart emojis. Even the most perfect seeming relationship has it's ups and downs and it is totally normal for you and your partner to go through rough patches. Whether your issue is a trivial disagreement or a major problem, fighting with your partner is really unpleasant. It can be depressing, it can be distracting, and it can start to negatively affect other areas of your life. Here are a few mantras for relationship rough patches to help you navigate this situation.
In my experience, rough patches in relationship stem from arguments that can't be easily resolved. Finding yourself having the same fight over and over can be incredibly frustrating, and you might even find yourself forgetting what started this whole thing in the first place. Rough patches can reveal underlying incompatibilities with your partner, but they can also be opportunities for growth. The fact that you and your partner didn't just throw in the towel initially is a great indication that you have a deep connection worth fighting for. Learning how to clearly and honestly communicate is essential to any relationship, so even though rough patches are not fun, they can ultimately make your relationship better.
