I find it very hard to have a full blown argument these days.
It can happen, but 95% of the time, I will walk away.People tend to say the wrong things when quite upset.
Sometimes, if we are not careful, that can hurt for a long time.
As I get older 'something stops me'....I have to admit, and I am forever grateful.
There is no going back once the wrong thing is said, it is out there in the universe.
There is always time later to fix a problem,not in the heat of it all.Walk away..
If the subject is one very important to me,I will simply say 'let's just agree to disagree on this ,okay?' I HATE arguing at any time,but sometimes there is know way I will be able to just agree with someone simply to keep them happy. I feel physically ill if I get into a loud or serious argument,and have always been this way.I have recently been in an enormous and hideous argument with my adult son who I love more than anything.We NEVER argue in such a manner,and I am still sick over it after several days have passed.....
