I had an argument with someone close to me the other day and I’m telling you by 11 pm when it was time to go to sleep, I felt remorse and regret. Not that I didn’t think I was right at the time of the argument (of course I was haha) but I just realized the futility of what had taken place and how it takes me further away from someone instead of closer to them.
What is the point of relationships? Why do we have the people that we have in our lives? Why can’t we just live on our own and not interact with people, that way we won’t have conflict and we will be at peace?
I don’t have all the answers, obviously, but my view is that each relationship does have a point and a purpose. When you know what that purpose is it can change the dynamics of your relationship. At the end of the day you will keep coming back to the purpose and that will keep you on track for the next time.
Being right is not always right. It may feel like it at the time but it creates a space between you and the other person that needs to be healed and that takes time and effort. Try and pick your battles and decide if being right is going to serve you or not.
Go for a win-win situation where both of you come out feeling heard and respected.
I wish you lots of beautiful connections
