Why Arguing Via Text is a Big Mistake

Do you love them enough to look them in the eye?

Having hard conversations with those weloveisnever fun. And intoday’sdigital age, manycouplesoptto just hide from each other and hash it out from behind their cell phoneand laptop screens.

You don’t have to face the situation head on anymore … nor look the person you’re hurting in the eye.

But it turns out, eye contact is anessentialpart ofeffective communicationand healthy conflict resolution.

According to YourTango expert andpsychologistDr. StanTatkin, hiding behind yourphoneor leaving critical conversations to times when you’re distracted (like whiledriving in yourcar) is the wrong way to tackle difficult discussions, as this disconnected approach can actually escalate conflict.

Heexplains that asvisually-thinkinghumans, we need directeye contacttoco-regulateeach other’s nervous systems. “There’s a very small portion of the eye that sees the world in high definition,” Dr. Tatkin explains, “and that’s right dead ahead. Anything outside of that area we’re leaving blind.”

Not being able to see the person’s face and fully read their facialexpressionsmakes usfeel uncertain and anxious in conflict situationsandoften lead tous completelymisinterpretingtheother person’s truereaction whentrying to decipher their thoughtsvia text messages or distracted conversations in the car.

The result? A calmdiscussionquickly twists into a heated argument thathinders you from reaching acompromise, connection, and deeperunderstanding.

So, how can you resolve conflict more quickly andmakeeye contactwork for you in a tech-driven world?

My name is Jessica Luis, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 1 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mohammed, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Mohammed, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man... If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you.
