Family members are not excluded from the equation.
Be Nice to Everyone

People say never judge a book by its cover, but sadly we all tend to judge everyone by our first encounter. Most of never stop to think that some people are argumentative because they could be experiencing a rough patch in their life. One thing to remember when dealing with a person that is an expert on disagreements is most of them are expert on arguments and they love to find ways to bring you to their level. Rather than argue with them just remember to be nice to them at all cost. Don’t waste your breath or energy.
Remember to pick your battles wisely. This sounds more like a cliché’ but it’s true IGNORE IGNORE. Remember everyone doesn’t deserve your time and everyone doesn’t deserve your time. Just keep in mind that hurt people hurt people and misery loves company. Know your worth and realize that simple fights are beneath you.
Believe it or not, fights start when people are not able to finish their thoughts while attempting to speak. Do yourself a favor and allow these types of people the opportunity to finish their sentences and their thoughts. Don’t interrupt.
One thing that most of us forget about disagreements is they don’t have to destroy relationships and they don’t have to last forever. Remember that it doesn’t matter how the argument started, it’s just matters that you put all disagreements to bed before you go to bed so you will be able to rest well knowing that you have put all pettiness behind you. Agree to disagree and move on!
