relationship ratio

5:1 is the magical relationship ratio! For every negative interaction during conflict, a stable and happy relationship has five or more positive interactions. Keep in mind these interactions can be large or small.⠀

Negative interactions could include criticism, contempt, defensiveness, stonewalling, loneliness, isolation, and dismissing body language. ⠀

Positive interactions could include repair attempts, affection, genuine interest, appreciation, empathy, apologizing, playfulness, and accepting their perspective.⠀
