Have you met someone who thinks similarly as you?
If you have, then you are very lucky.
If you haven’t, I know the struggle.
I know how it feels like to always argue and fight for what you believe in. Although, this can really be a tiring process, you go through it anyway because who wouldn’t want to have an understanding with their loved ones? The argument either ends up in shouting or complete silence. You either choose to deal with the problem, or ignore it completely.
So how can you have the same vision with your loved ones?
PUT DOWN YOUR PRIDE
I know it’s difficult. You don’t have to put it down completely. Just tone it down a little bit so you can see the bigger picture of what is happening. Why is the idea closed on your partner? What are his experiences that might cause roadblocks into welcoming your perspective? You have to understand where your partner is coming from so you can plan how to promote your idea better. Always put yourself in the shoes of your partner.
TREAD THE SITUATION CAREFULLY
You can always fight for your point of view but too much arguments to prove your point can make your partner give you a blind eye. In fact, they might completely turn their backs on you. Why? It’s because of their pride. You might be thinking right now that, “Uhm, doesn’t that sound unfair? I toned down my pride for this!” Exactly. You need to make your partner feel that you toned down your pride so it can be reciprocated to you. Don’t fire your arguments like an armalite. Give 2 or 3 reasons for your point of view and how you strongly feel about it. Give your partner a moment to breathe because you will eventually….
MAKE THEM IMMERSE IN YOUR UNIVERSE
You got that right. Experience is the best teacher. Whether it’s a sport or dish they just won’t try, let them know you would do the same thing for them.
“I would do the same for you…”
Or “I would try it out for you..”
If they don’t like the experience, they’ll at least witness how happy you are with your cause.
In the end, that’s what matters the most: making your partner happy.
Acceptance is a very difficult thing to do. That’s why people often don’t see eye to eye.
It is true that people don’t change, but we can choose to accept people’s flaws.
For the love of your life, acceptance of their flaws is the best love you can give.
