Each of us has misunderstandings with the people around them. We can have misunderstandings either with a neighbor from the fifth floor or with our closest friend. Differences may result in a quarrel, which is able to flow out into a large and heavy offense.
Often, one-minute of anger is able to cloud and control your mind. A person will see the situation much bigger and in a less positive way, and because of what the quarrel will become heavier and deep resentment settles somewhere inside. In this situation, forgiveness is the only way to help the person.
Everyone could see that if we quarrel with an important and loved one, we start to feel worse, and life does not seem as good as before. Everything indicates to us that we need to make peace with a person and start a dialogue, but pride, the desire to punish or a wish to make the person to rethink on his action cover all desires to raise a conciliatory little finger. Every day will become harder, resentment starts to accumulate inside causing anger at any thought of the person you quarreled with. From the current situation, there are only two ways out: wait until the person himself takes the first step (nobody knows how much time you will lose that way), or to try to genuinely understand and forgive him, enter into a position to express directly, the cause of your discontent, and try to discuss the current situation. Calm and open dialogue is able to open people’s eyes and make them think. If you are with someone in a quarrel, do not ruin yourself, reconcile and forget all differences, for peace and harmony, which is so easy to lose, are the most valuable attributes in the life of a happy man.
