move on + do better

I have had this thing that if I knew I did wrong—you know, being human and all—it’d gnaw at me and ruin my sleep. So even when I’ve apologized and/or did everything in my power to rectify a situation, the quiet wee hours of the night’d come and I’d still be replaying the scene with different endings. […]

Things to Remember About Arguing: You are not always right. The point of arguing is not to win. You don’t know everything. It’s ok to stop when you see things escalating. Some people will not get it. Focus on solutions instead of going in circles about the issue. Saying the same thing over and over […]
