When the truck driver thinks about the moments they will be with their partner, they only imagine enjoying time together. But more often than not, tuckers can be faced with meaningless fights and discussion with their partner in result of anger.
Getting angry is a common type of emotion. It is how the human beings react to situations in which they feel there is injustice. They also happen in relationships, but the way you deal with that anger will make all the difference to have a healthy relationship.
All truckers and their respective partners must avoid hostility, lose control, and explode when angry. If you feel your anger ends up turning into a disproportionate discussion, you must learn the best techniques to control that feeling:
1- Knowing yourself
Self-awareness is key to detecting any signs that you are beginning to become excessively upset. For example: sweating, heavy breathing, pessimistic thoughts.
2- Be aware of what situations make you angry
It is very possible that you already know what things make you angry with your partner, whether it is waiting a long time for your partner to go out or conversation topics that annoy you. Try to avoid getting involved in those situations that irritate you.
3- Stop your anger
If you have not been able to avoid getting involved in a situation that upsets you and makes you angry, do not give up the anger. You better withdraw for a moment with all due respect to your partner and try to relax again, either with music or something that makes you feel good.
4- Use your breathing to relax
Focus on your breathing, inhale deeply and exhale slowly. Try to relax your muscles and bring your thoughts to something that makes you feel relaxed. It is not something that is achieved quickly, but with practice it can become a very useful technique for you.
5- Stay in control of your thoughts
Once you feel relaxed you will be able to think more flexibly and analyze the situation. Possibly you will come to the conclusion that having opposing opinions should not be the reason for an argument.
6- Work on yourself other ways to show disagreement
If you explain your reasons to your partner without any lack of respect, without using irony, aggressiveness or self-pity and try to find a solution together, the resolution of the situation can be much more positive.
Truck driver, if you learn to control your anger and don’t let the situation go any further, it’s very possible that the reunion with your partner will be as you had imagined and the good moments together will be maintained.
