Allow your defenses to come down
Relationships have their ups and their downs and it’s very easy to put on your fighting gloves when the fire is missing. Whatever the relationship problem is, big or small, the two of you need to forgive and work it out. If you can’t forgive the person you’re with for whatever the hurt is, you should ask yourself if the relationship is worth investing any more time in. Stop, take off the fighting gloves and open yourself up to vulnerability. If the two of you aren’t there yet, take a time out and revisit the issue when the two of you aren’t too overwhelmed to confront it.
