If you’re struggling with someone over an issue that you just can’t seem to get past, assume that there’s something for you to become aware of and that they are the perfect person to hear it from. This disagreement has arisen for a reason. Otherwise, this drama wouldn’t be showing up on your radar. Rather than trying to convince, control or persuade them, listen to what they’re saying. Pretend they’re expressing an opinion about someone else and try to see their point of view. You’ve got nothing to lose…

And a lot to gain.
