Write it Out
Sometimes in an argument, you don’t get a chance to say what’s on your mind because words get lost in the heat of the moment. If you’re yelling, screaming, or cursing, you’re most likely feeling defensive under attack, and the hostile confrontation leaves you forgetting what you want to say or why you’re even arguing in the first place. Calm down, grab a pen, and list some talking points that don’t involve name calling, blame, or any other negative or hurtful language. This way you stay focused on the subject and don’t get sidetracked into going in any direction other than a positive one.
