When someone threatens another individual, they are using strong-arm tactics that will only generate a response that is based out of fear. These tactics are also known as “big guns”, and they have no place in a healthy and stable household. Instead of using abusive tactics like these to intimidate your partner with ultimatums, approach them from a place of love and kindness in order to obtain the cooperative and harmonious relationship that you truly desire.
- When someone uses strong-arm techniques in a relationship, they are only going to get a fear-based response.
- Big gun techniques have absolutely no place in a civil relationship. It is best to put them away and replace them with loving and caring responses.
- Once you give up threatening behavior, you will be met with a relationship that is more harmonious and cooperative.
“When a partner seems to be losing an argument, he might waive the big guns.”
