Odds are you have gotten into a fight with someone you love and care for. In the aftermath of the fight you make a plan to prevent this from happening again. This plan assumes you will act perfectly when presented with the same scenario.
Rooted inside of this “plan for perfect” you sow your own seeds of destruction. It’s impossible to live up to a perfect standard. Life throws us curveballs. We’re imperfect beings and we tend to overreact.
Instead of setting ourselves up for an impossible scenario. It’s better to plan for when things go wrong.
Making it clear to that you love and respect this person. Strengthening the lines of communication so uncomfortable messages can be shared. Giving each other breathing room when a conversation overheats.
Plan for the failure. Not for perfect.
