I as get older I notice myself changing more and more not only physically but mentally. I can handle problems better and I have acquired a very special tool “Diplomacy” (very much needed in the workplace…hush) The fact is we are all different and isn’t that what makes us interesting in the first place? I used to be very aggressive towards anyone who pissed me off in the past, but I have learned that the opposite attitude is much more efficient in resolving issues. I say if you get into an argument with someone (friend, co-worker, family member, significant other, etc.) over something stupid, instead of spending the rest of the day in a bad mood, sad or mad – Just call or get up and go to them and say something like:
” I know we both can be difficult and we may not agree on everything but I care for our friendship, love, whatever and I just want to leave this behind”
Trust me it works wonders and let’s face it if you have pride and you decide not to take action, all it will do is create more and more drama that will end up lasting for hours, days, weeks, years.. whatever and you might be missing out on the most important things in life. So I say STOP! and put your differences aside and call that person you have been in a tiff with and give it another chance. Life is too short! Learn from your pets, they have no pride or ego and they always forget everything.
