Don't Bring Past Disagreements into New Problems

It is important to have a sense of closure with past conflicts. Don't hold on to issues that have already been resolved. When discussing a new topic, don't bring up something involving a past problem. For example, "This is like the time you did this" or "I still can't believe you did that."

It is crucial to not bring up unrelated points of contention so that the issue at hand can be resolved. Putting something else into the argument won’t help you sort out the current problem, but rather will likely prolong the conflict and cause even more resentment with one or both partners. The fewer the issues to focus on the better.

The past should be considered a closed book with the title "Do not open." It is over, so it is best to not bring it up.
