Relationships: Love her when you disagree.

Awhile back, my partner Kat and I had an argument and disagreement. What we argued about wasn’t all that big or important, but it escalated and became a bigger issue than it needed to be. I made the mistake of letting my ego get in the way. I had to be right, and she had to be wrong. I refused to forgive her, and nearly broke up with her… all over a stupid disagreement.

It was later that I realized something very important for all relationships. Even when you disagree, even when you fight, you still love that person. Remember that. She is the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. She is still the girl I fell in love with, and I’m still in love with her. We’ve been together for a year and a half. Should I throw all of that away, and jeopardize our future over something so minute and trivial? If both people in a relationship remember that, every time you have a big disagreement, they’ll be able to settle it quickly and peacefully.
