Fights and arguments are inevitable in every kind of relationship, whether it’s between parent and child or between lovers. It’s just impossible to bottle up those emotions that you are so comfortable to let out in front of someone who is ready to forgive you because they love you back just as much. Here are some reasons why we often have tussles with people who we love and care about the most.
1. To put our insecurities out on the table
Sometimes loved ones can do things that hurt us or that are simply perceived as a threat. We tend to express how it may negatively impact us and our stemming concerns. This can often brew into a fight which can be tiring but can also lead to a mutual consensus.
2. Just to pull their leg
Have you ever got into a minor fight just for fun? You start off by pulling their leg or irritating them. They have no idea it’s all in the name of fun with no intention of harming them. But some sensitive people take it to another level.
5. To make them understand your point of view
Making someone understand where you’re coming from is often a task in itself and it requires flames (not literally) to be thrown in different directions until a sense of calm takes over.
6. Pet peeves get the better of you
Not everybody is perfect and you know that very well. However you can’t help but get angry when that loved one doesn’t do the dishes or leaves the bathroom in a mess after he’s done bathing.
8. When they make the mistake of not sympathising with your first world problems
Parents have the talent of pointing out your flaws when you rant in exchange for their sympathy. What happens next, we all know.
