You may think that Tiff and I never argue or get into conflict.

You’d be mistaken.

Over the past 9 years we’ve been together we’ve worked through MANY conflicts. Some very big and some very small, with a few in between.

Yep, we’re human.

Sorry to burst your bubble like this.

You may be thinking to yourself, “Well, in all of their pictures on facebook, they look so happy and in love.”

Have you ever found yourself dreaming of the day when you have a relationship that feels good all the time? Where there’s no drama or conflict to work through?

I have.

The truth is, being in a relationship will be the hardest work you ever do, and the highest of highs and the lowest of lows will be experienced.

So if you find yourself wishing for that day when you live in BLISS, remember the dog days will rear their ugly heads and when that happens, remember this, “Tiff and Jack said they have days like this too, and they work through it, so I know I can too.”

We want you to know that it’s okay to feel like crap some days, and to wonder how in the hell you’ll ever make it through the latest *brouhaha (I just love this word) you’re facing.


*brou·ha·ha

ˈbro͞ohäˌhä/
noun
  1. a noisy and overexcited reaction or response to something.
    “24 members resigned over the brouhaha”

In today’s DIY RelationTips video, Tiff and I are getting real, raw, and relevant, and give you the 3 steps necessary to move from wanting to throttle your “other” to feeling that delicious connectivity you love so much.

As you can see, it’s not easy, but it is simple to move from pissed to blissed.

It’s 3 simple steps just like we outlined in the video.

How do you manage your anger? What do you do to calm yourself so that you can move into resolution with your SO (significant other)? Inquiring minds would like to know, share right below this post.

Love,

Jack
