“Don’t let a small argument ruin a great friendship.”
Arguments are no more than two points of view that don’t coincide. It’s inevitable that disagreements will occasionally occur between people who are close. What’s more, occasional arguments can be a healthy indication of two confident personalities who feel comfortable enough to express their true feelings.
Next time you argue with a friend, accept that you have different points of view – and get over it! Your friendship is far more important than anything you may quarrel over. Don’t sacrifice the relationship you’ve built together for the sake of winning a point.
If apologies are needed, make them. If forgiveness is required, offer it. By moving past the argument, you both come out winners and stay friends!
