Attending to difficult discussions with someone close can lead to two outcomes. Either a lot of stress, argument, defensiveness, or alternatively objective discussion leading to a mutually beneficial breakthrough.
To achieve the latter, you have to be calm with only one objective, which is to create a breakthrough outcome that is mutually beneficial.
You will be pleasantly surprised if you do not defend anything you do not agree with. Instead, listen objectively and ensure that the other person realizes that you understand what they are saying, and repeat what you have understood emphatically.
Having done the above, you can then share your feelings and watch with pleasant surprise a manifestation of a mutually beneficial outcome.
