well, it has been a long time since I have had an argument as not possible to do when living alone!
Though it is possible with friends.
With friends I tend to come back first, however with a partner I used to SULK depending on the situation and more often than not I would wait for him to make the first move.
Sometimes however< i would forget I was not talking!
Gosh well that would depend enormously on what the argument was about and who started it!
I don't carry a grudge ever but I do not apologise unless I genuinely believe I have something to apologise for. So I would just carry on as normal I guess without making up because that would be up to the other person. If it was my fault then I would apologise and offer reparation almost immediately.
It depends on the gravity of the argument!!! Even if I do believe I am correct I will make the move to calm the situation if it is possible.If I know I am wrong,I definitely will back down and say so.
I really do not like arguing at all. I do however enjoy a good healthy DEBATE!!
I will make up, but I will not tolerate bad behaviour....I find sometimes there are people who 'feel', they can have a go at me because I am a peace kind of person.
It is always important to make up in (most) cases.
If I did get upset at someone, it really needed to have a very good reason.
Confrontation of any kind is one thing I try to avoid.
It's not that I am a weak person, far from it....but it is a side of human nature that I really find ugly.
I say AVOID arguments as much as one can.
Not a positive part of ones life, and I must say....really not needed.
There are many other ways to defuse a situation, and good communication is the better option.
If for some crazy reason I had started a argument, I know how it makes me feel....and will very quickly RUN! to the other person and say sorry, if I was in the wrong & I would know that after re-thinking 'why' it happened.
As you get older, you do take much more care...in just 'how' you express your dislike for things.
My family know if I am very upset, they get a A4 letter, with me expressing myself.
Same with anyone really.For me it is a better option.
My husband had a 1 way shouting match with our eldest daughter about her partner ignoring me, while in the same room. I said nothing to my husband while this was going on.That was Nov 5
last year. Our daughter still haven’t spoken to us, bur will still let us see our little grand-daughters.
They live in Melbourne, we live in Sydney. We’ll be seeing them this Friday in fact.
