What does arguing really solve?
I this day and age, it seems peaceful or at least calm discussion is hard for many but, really, what does arguing solve?
I have four steps that work for me:
1. Calm Down - Ask if this will matter 5 minutes/hours/days/weeks/months/years from now?
2. Find The Root Cause - Ask five WHYs until you determine the real issue.
3. Own It - Own what you have done wrong and adjust your attitude and actions.
4. Release It - Pray, meditate, and leave it in God's hands. We can't fix everything. Besides, 99% of what we worry about never happens anyway.
Life will always bring us problems but if we view them as opportunities to grow and learn, things work out much better.
