Moving On From Arguments

I'm someone who has a lot of arguments. At home, at school, here on this forum. And so I've had to learn how to handle them. I find there is a key principle some people don't get or refuse to apply. One argument should not mean anything. It doesn't matter how pissed off you are, it doesn't mean they're a bad person automatically. Never judge someone on the basis of one argument. Some of the people you argue with most are the ones you love. Just because someone can make you temporarily hate them more than you value your own life, doesn't mean you should then hold a grudge. Literally think about something else. Literally move on. Are you going to read a book now? Or go onto a different thread? Have dinner? Do some work? Got to sleep? Think about that. Go to your happy place if you must. Pat a dog or cat, it's soothing and they're adorable so they make you happy. Or at least my little dog does. :supercute: At the end of the day, if we cannot give each other a little tolerance and leeway, we cannot have a stable modern society. Negotiability and respect are important principles. So please don't grudge someone here because of one pointed disagreement. They might turn out to have a lot of interesting conversations you could have with them. And more importantly, it's just unfair.
Thank you for your time. Hope you have a good day. :blowkiss::blowkiss:
