Don’t you hate that awkward tension after an argument? You know, the one that people don’t really talk about? You’re not even annoyed anymore, but there’s just this awkward silence and you can’t quite seem to snap back into normality.You wonder whether your partner is still annoyed, or whether they too are hovering in limbo between arguing and normality.
Neither partner wants to be the first to move, talk, or make eye contact. And neither partner’s true intentions are clear.Arguments are bad enough as is, without extending it by a couple of hours of awkward silences. We need to learn to resolve and move on from arguments quickly and efficiently, so that we don’t waste our time needlessly on confusions, egos or frustrations.
