Blaming each other for everything only leads to more conflict and less connection in relationships. When conversations have become predictably negative and our partner seems to be avoiding talking, we are left feeling hurt, alone and very frustrated. Unresolved conflicts can stack up in the background only to resurface days later in a flash. Soon tension fills our relationship and we may wonder if we will ever feel close again. Does this sound like your relationship?
