Let’s be real, relationships are a hit or miss, especially with friends, family or co-workers. We sometimes do not know why some last or change, but conversations do not last, and this may be the reason why relationships change.
According to Psychology Today, a study tells that 3 behavior techniques backfires conversations. These techniques are teasing, whining and nagging. Here’s a breakdown of these 3 things and how you can solve them:
Problem: Teasing can sometimes lead to hurting people’s feelings. Why? Some grow up getting bullied in school and people can be very sensitive.
Solution: Teasing can go awry in positive and negative ways. Ask yourself if you want to continue your relationship with the other and see if it’s worth the time.
Problem: Someone complains constantly and it's irritating that drives others away and often fails to get anyone to pay attention to you.
Solution: Find a way to address your complaints by looking the outside picture of the problem. In order to figure this out, look at both sides of the problem and address it.
Problem: You know the person’s tone of voice when they have a problem with you, especially if you repeat your complaint to everyone.
Solution: Test yourself in not commenting any issue for a week. This can save yourself and remove the issue off your complaint list.
What to do if these three things happen? Take a look at what’s going on and re-evaluate constructively.
