How To deal With… an explosive BFF argument
One thing leads to another and suddenly you’re shouting expletives at the person you care about most. But how can you get things back to normal? P: trying to respond to your friend in the heat of the moment is not a good idea. Joey and i have had cross words over the years and the only thing that works is giving each other space. anything worth saying is better after a period of time apart. our generation is all about the immediate – sending a text, firing off a tweet – but it’s not always the best way. J: Doing that will heighten a dramatic situation. instead, reflect on your part of the argument. if you start a conversation with your friend with: ‘i’m sorry i upset you,’ it will open up a discussion between the two of you. also, take the first step.
