Advice from Melissa: Should I flee or fight?

Print This Page

Dear Melissa,

My boyfriend and I just can’t stop fighting lately. I don’t know if it is Mercury Retrograde, cabin fever or just us falling out of love. I am not ready to give up. What do I do?

Fighter

Dear Fighter,

Put your gloves down and go back to your corner. Take a time out. Maybe you need a time out from each other. The winter blues are a real thing and they cause people to become easily agitated and grumpy. Daylight savings time is coming, longer days and more sunlight should help ease some of the tension. If you are fighting over silly things it will likely pass, but if you are fighting over serious issues, don’t ignore it or put them on a back burner. Nothing ever gets fixed by pushing the broken pieces aside. Deal with your stuff and enjoy the sunshine.

Melissa
