With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts

Eleanor Roosevelt

Don’t let a small argument ruin a great friendship.  Life is too short to argue for days about insignificant things like being late or forgetting to call.

I don't have to attend every argument I'm invited to.

Sad but true I’ve known some whose arguments went on for a life time.  So I’m taking a little time sharing some good advice that I’ve found to be true.   We need to remember that 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.

Keep your words soft and tender because tomorrow you may have to eat them.

 Nobody is perfect, and we all will do something to hurt another person at some point in our lives.  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.

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours — it is an amazing journey — and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.

Bob Mouawad

Life is too short to let negative emotions keep us from the ones we love.  If apologies are needed, make 
them. If forgiveness is required, offer it. By moving past the argument, you both come out winners .

An apology is a good way to have the last word.

I like that last quote about apology being able to get in the last word. It is good to not hold a grudge and to make up between each other. Life is short enough for us to stay mad with someone we care about.

YOu are so right. At times I do forget, but them common sense takes over.

The author of that quote about "soft and sweet words you might have to eat" was my dad's favorite sayings, so for years I thought he was the author. LOL

Love the 'last word' statement!


I agree many relationships can be ruined by senseless arguements. " Life is too short to argue for days about insignificant things."
