Taking notes from last night’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, I know I’m definitely a better person when it comes to conflict. I have NEVER seen so much foolishness and immaturity between such women in my life! I can admit that I was embarrassed as a black women, a mother, a career woman….HECK A WOMAN period!!!
If you’re a person who loves conflict, I suggest you try some other things because it just makes you look stupid! For real!
Here are a few tips:
1. Take deep breaths and count to ten. Ignore what is being said and just give yourself a second to calm down. You must be able to keep a cool head in order to be able to walk away from the situation.
2. Explain that you do not want to argue. Admit that the discussion has gotten out of hand and that this was not your intention. This should calm down the other person a little bit.
3. Walk away. This is the most important part. You must follow through with walking away, even if the other person continues to argue. This is the only way to keep things from escalating further and turning into something you do not want.
