I'm grateful that my partner and I can talk things out, even really hard things, and feel like we're making progress. We had a bad fight last night and things got pretty explosive, but I feel like we're a bit more grounded now. We talked about how we felt, and how both of us messed up, and steps we're going to take to try to make things a little better, and even the benefits of having that fight (getting things out of our systems, release, etc.).
It gave me relief, and hope that our relationship will make it, that we can be honest with each other, and that my partner will get relief from some of his pain.
