When our spouse, partner or significant other hurts us, we sometimes feel justified to respond with anger, guilt, or sarcasm. It may make us feel better for a moment, but it rarely produces the results we are hoping for. There is a quote from a book called Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs, and he says: You can be right, but wrong at the top of your voice. In essence, what this means is that we can be "right" in our assessment of the situation and still be "wrong" in how we respond. We should treat each other with respect, even in the midst of conflict. And being kind and respectful is more likely to lead to reconciliation, because being kind, respectful, tolerant, and patient even in the face of hurt feelings allows your partner to focus on his or her mistakes, rather than your response.
