Why does my partner turn every discussion into accusations and highlight my flaws?

Answer from our relationship expert:

Constantly feeling attacked or criticized by your partner can erode trust and intimacy in a relationship. It suggests a lack of empathy and effective conflict resolution skills. This behavior may stem from unresolved personal issues, communication breakdowns, or power struggles within the relationship. It's essential to address this pattern early on to prevent further damage. Approach your partner with compassion and honesty, expressing how their behavior makes you feel. Encourage them to reflect on their actions and consider seeking couples therapy to work through underlying issues together.

Reflect on your own communication style and how you contribute to the dynamic. Focus on building mutual respect and understanding in your interactions. Practice active listening and strive to validate each other's feelings and perspectives. Consider setting boundaries and seeking support from trusted friends or a therapist.
