Tension buildup can happen in the family due to lack of communication and many other things. When parents sense the building of tension, it is important for them to “blow the steam” to make everything feels good again. A family member may quietly make sacrifices to others, but after a period of time without recognized, the tension can build up within him or her. Releasing the tension should be a regular activity for any family, because there’s no way that everything is working just fine for a prolonged period of time. If tension is not managed and released regularly, conflicts will occur. Finding out why tension could build up shouldn’t be a complicated matter. We should be aware that each individual has specific issue that needs to be solved. When encountering a situation, it could be important that we look at things with fresh eye. A family that doesn’t know how to properly release tension will be in a state of helplessness, because another intense conflict in inevitable. Inappropriate form of conflict can be quite non-productive and any attempt to prevent it should be taken seriously. It is true that conflict is an inescapable fact in our lives and they will eventually happen. Even so, we should try to minimize their frequency and intensity. If a conflict does happen, it should be seen as an opportunity to find a middle ground between two arguments. Conflicts can also be resolved by accepting one’s argument in an occasion and accepting another argument in a different occasion.
When releasing tension, it is important to be flexible. We could find a time when all family members are relatively happier. It is the opportunity to say about something in the most appropriate manner, without causing ill feeling or even anger. It is important for a person to not think that his or her argument is bigger than life and it should be accepted unquestionably. Emotional roller coaster can be avoided by having good relationship and discussions during this time. Everyone in the family will be comfortable in the existing relationship and they will become more open to one another. It can be quite frustrating if one member of the family if very closed. Often, all we need is just a little love and the relationship will blossom again. Each family member should have a certain degree codependency with one another, regardless if one member of the family is known to be highly independent. This will cause people to appreciate one another. There should be a symbiotic, entwined and deep relationship in the family. Love can help us to release the tension in the family. Parents should think that they are soulmates and meant to be together. This will ensure that the relationship will take place for a long period of time. Sometimes, people just get tired and they are under a great deal of pressure at work. Regardless of the situation, it is important that family members are able to release the tension and doing things properly.
