How to Stop, Drop, and Roll in Your Marrirage

Jan 27, 2015 / Communication     

All couples have disagreements. Much of the time, these fights are like brush fires—they come out of nowhere and overwhelm us with flames. And just like a real fire, the fires in our marriages require us to do three things: stop, drop, and roll. First, we must stop. This means stopping a healthy debate from escalating into an unhealthy argument by taking a break at the first sign it is getting out of control. Second, we must drop. When an argument does occur, we must resolve it and drop it as soon as possible to avoid saying hurtful things.  Finally, we must roll…roll the conversation in a new direction. For more details on how to stop, drop, and roll in your marriage, listen in to my podcast.
