Coping with a nagging partner can sometimes be emotionally stressful. Your partner might be a bully who says hurtful things and does things that make you feel bad. The complains might be said in a sweet or soft voice but the sting still hurts. When living with a nagging spouse, you might often feel defensive and might want to lash back. There are many things you can do in reaction to your partners complains. Most of these reactions might Strain your relationship even more. Below are few reactions you should try out in response to your partners complains.
Don't take it personal, there are different reasons why a partner might be prickly. In most cases, complains from your partner has more to do with the one saying it, and less to do with the person the nagging seems to be targeted on. Write Out a list of what your partner is complaining about. Most times, an off handed comment feels like a nag or complains when in the real sense, its actually not. You might also be reading meanings into a particular comment than is really there. Most times, you should remember to take out some time and get curious when you feel triggered.
