Ok i've been dating this girl for about 3 months now and she is pretty much the best that has happened to me. Anyways, I have this problem where I tend to get angry over stupid little things and take too many things personal that shouldn't be taken personal. This has happened to me in past relationships before and has ruined them and it is starting to take it's toll on this one. I already know I have a problem I just want to know if anybody has any advice on controlling my problems. I don't want to ruin the best thing in my life. Thanks.
Wow! You sound like my guy! Lets see, its really nothing that can't be fixed with a little control. Instead of jumping to the punch to take things seriously, ask questions, think about the situation and then react. This can all go down in a matter of seconds. Plus its a great conversation keeper and you and your girlfriend will feel a lot better. All it takes is control and a little breathing....Maybe your gf can even help!?!?! Hope this helped some!
My boyfriend does this, he's gotten better though, I think what you need to do, is just take a break from the conversation, just tell her you need to stop and gather your thoughts, just let her know that you understand what you're doing and you're sorry and you just need to step back for a moment and let it slide by, because the more you argue it starts going in circles and you don't even know where you began
