Navigating Disagreements: A Doctor and Tech Professional's Guide to Relationship Harmony

Disagreements are an inevitable part of any relationship. However, how we handle them can make all the difference between a healthy and loving partnership versus a toxic and unsatisfying one. We share our tips and insights on how we handle disagreements in our relationship.

Open Communication

Open and Honest Communication is key. We always encourage each other to share our thoughts and feelings without judgment. This creates a safe space where we can discuss even the most difficult topics. Sometimes we even write down our divergent perspectives, which makes it easier to share our thoughts and feelings.

Active Listening

Active Listening is another essential skill. We believe that it is important to pay attention and avoid interruptions while the other person is speaking, so we can truly understand each other's perspectives. Practicing active listening helps us find common ground and work towards a mutually acceptable solution.


Compromise is crucial. We always work together to find a solution that both parties can agree on. We keep track of the compromises we've made using a Relationship Journal, so we can remember the progress we've made.

Taking a Break

Taking a Break can be helpful when emotions are high. We call it "Going to the balcony," which means taking some time to cool off and reflect on the situation before coming back to the discussion. This helps us handle disagreements in a healthy manner, rather than letting our emotions take over.

Appreciating Differences

Appreciating Differences is something we truly believe in. Instead of trying to change each other, we recognize and appreciate each other's differences. We even have a persona page in our Relationship Journal where we describe each other's personas, so we can visually see and appreciate each other's differences. Recognizing and appreciating differences helps us handle disagreements in a positive and loving manner.

By promoting open communication, active listening, compromise, taking a break, and appreciating differences, we have built a strong and loving partnership that serves as an inspiration to others. Remember, disagreements are a natural part of any relationship, but how we handle them is what makes all the difference.
