1. Emotion regulation

Being able to regulate your emotions in different situations when in a relationship. For example: when your partner doesn't text you back right away, try not to act on your anxiety by sending impulsive text messages or calling. Instead, try focusing on managing your anxiety.

3. Insight

It is an important skill as it helps you become aware of who you are, what you need, what you want, and why you do the things you do. For example: if you are mindful, you will realize you're not snapping at your partner because he/she is being annoyed, but because you had a bad day at work.
