There are certain times in a relationship where you have to discuss something with your partner, but you already know it's going to be a heated discussion. How do you handle this kind of conversation?
Some people are too scared to even bring up the topic. I, myself, am one of those people. I avoid the topic at all costs. I easily cry. I cry when I'm sad, I cry when I'm happy, I cry when I'm angry, it's a lose-lose situation for me. Eitherway I end up crying. This is a huge disadvantage when we're having a discussion. It will get so heated at times that I completely lose it and start crying. Of course, he will see this as me being hurt and not understanding his point of view purely because I'm crying while trying to get my point across. This isn't the case though, most of the time I'll be crying just because I'm so angry.
Other people like to face the discussion head on. They want to get it over with as soon as possible and are ready to take on the heat. They're not scared of any repercussions and want to make their point as clear as possible.
Another group of people like to play it sly. They know that bringing up the discussion will quickly lead to a very heated discussion so they try to make sure it can't get too heated. They'll do this by taking the discussion elsewhere, somewhere more crowded. Some place like a restaurant or during a trip is one of their favorite places. It's a place where they're supposed to be having fun, so they won't expect their partner to make too much fuss about it so as to not to ruin the fun they're having.
What do you think is the best way to bring up a discussion which you know will get heated very fast?
