How to Deal With a Difficult Spouse

Dealing with a person who continuously keeps complaining and is very critical about everything you do can be very difficult and can lead to a lot of mental stress. Follow the steps mentioned to deal with such people.


1. Be Positive: It is very necessary that you always maintain a positive attitude about things. Do not allow yourself to be influenced by your partner's negative and critical thinking.

2. Feel Sorry for your spouse: Remember that if a person is always complaining or being critical about most things in life it is because of their past life. There could be an event or a tragedy in their life that makes them behave this way.

3Avoid people with similar qualities: Stay away from friends and other family members who are negative and non-supportive. These people are best left to themselves. Do not allow them to influence your relationship with your spouse.

4. Do not Compromise: Stand up for your values and do not negotiate on these values. People with negative qualities usually like to have a say in everything and anything that matters directly or indirectly to them.

5. Patience: Patience is the key to a successful relationship. So do not lose your patience in difficult times. Convince yourself that this is a passing phase.

6. Have control: You must have control and awareness of everything and must have control over vital matters related to finance, purchases, children, etc.

7. Find a source of energy: Dealing with people who are always negative can be very tiring and stressful. You need to find a friend or person whom you can trust who is a source of encouragement to you and from whom you can draw positive qualities. Remember negative people drain us of our positive qualities, the only way you can replenish your positive attitude is by being with someone whom you trust and who shares the same thoughts as you.

8. Seek professional help if you feel you cannot manage the situation.
