Problem: My relationships are messed up. Even when I really like someone, we always seem to be fighting.

Solution: Next time you have a fight, each of you should take a walk around the block—going in opposite directions. When you meet, you should be feeling friendlier. Continue the walking till you’ve both calmed down.

Then to prevent fights in the future, practice good communication skills—really listen to each other and acknowledge what the other person has to say. And actually, the real reason that relationships get messed up is because of secrets between the two of you. So, don’t do something that you wouldn’t want your partner to find out about. You won’t believe the difference.
