Sometimes, when there is conflict, the conversation doesn’t go as well as we would like. Emotions may be getting in the way. The timing may be off.
You can say, “This is important. I want to talk about it. Not this way.” As possible, take a break from the conversation and pick it up when you are calmer.
“This is important. We can’t have a productive conversation when either of us are yelling. We can get back to this when we are both calm.”
“This is important. I want to talk about it. Now is not a good time. Let’s schedule a time that works better for us.”
