Yes, Fighting in a Relationship Is Normal—Here’s How to Do It Better
You know -- the Chicago way. Metaphors, Sean Connery and heavy metal aside, the phrase takes on literal significance in the world of preventing and fighting forest fires.
When faced with a massive, woodland-consuming storm of flames and ash, your first instinct might not be to apply more fire to the dire situation. But think about it for a second: A fire needs oxygen and fuel, such as leaves and vegetation, to continue raging.
Rob the fire of either source of nourishment and you squelch the chemical reaction that produces it. When faced with an oil-well fire, firefighters have been known to remove the oxygen from the equation by detonating a little dynamite. The blast eats up all the local oxygen, leaving nothing to keep the fire going.
When an entire forest is ablaze, however, a different tactic is in order. Firefighters remove the fuel -- and what better way to quickly remove combustible underbrush than to carefully set it on fire? How Wildfires Work. And as far as wars go, a lifetime is a long time.
Are you having trouble understanding yourself? Your life?
Are you uncertain as to what you ought to do, where you ought to go, whom you ought to be? When life is good to us from the start, it can be difficult to find our place in it.
The problem with this is because we never have to fight for anything, we never understand what is worth fighting for. This is often why loss, losing something or someone, or fighting off that loss shows us what that thing or person means to us. Every man, woman and in between deserve someone who loves them so much that he or she would be willing to fight for them tooth and nail. If you really think about it, having someone willing to fight for you, to protect you, to even fight your battles if need be, is exactly the reason human beings partnered up to begin with.
Get Your Team to Stop Fighting and Start Working
We seem to have this ingrained in us, literally needing a partner who -- at the very least -- we believe would fight for us if it came down to it. Not even necessarily fight for us with fists but fight for us with the decisions they make, the way they plan our lives, the way they forgive and do all they can to keep the relationship together. Anything else feels like abandonment. Jumping ship when the waters get rough causes the entire relationship to drown.
