Stop being too sensitive. If your partner makes a critical remark, don't jump on it and start an argument. Let it slide. Always being defensive and easily hurt are a sure way of causing trouble in you. By not taking offense and letting a few remarks go unanswered, the other party feels ashamed to have said the remark. The next time you make a remark that might be taken as hurtful, your mate might surprise you by letting it slide.
