Get one more word in with your partner.
Some mornings start with a disagreement. There is a point of diminishing returns on words spoken. It’s approximately two minutes into the conversation.
After that, it’s not a conversation. It’s an argument. At that point, nothing you say matters.
You won’t be able to ‘prove you are right’ until you’ve both accepted that you’re probably both right and both wrong.
No matter whether it’s your spouse, partner, boss, employee, client, or co-worker, it’s up to you.
It’s not admitting defeat; it’s taking the first step towards reconciliation.
If you’re too scared to ‘lose’ then you’ve already lost.
