  1. Well, I for one don’t keep grudges. I won’t have anyone living up in my head rent free. I confront you, we trash it and it’s gone.

      What if it’s a deep issue? Like a character flaw that may not be so easy to trash?

      Thank you for your comment!!

    Not an expert myself, but the one thing I can say helps any relationship is communicating and ‘being real’ at it.
    Most relationships are borne from a mutual or one sided selfishness so fights and emotional abuse are common place.

    Don’t take my word for it though, still figuring it out myself.

      Thank you for your advice Superman! I guess it can help if communication is clear, but emotions get in the way of clear communication don’t you think?

  3. Well, I for one will just rather confront you, we trash it and it’s gone

    I’m not sure there is any straight way of dealing with difficult relationships. There are a lot of variables and actions taken are dependent on those variables. These include, but not limited to, the people involved, their xter, their response to issues, the issue(s), and even the environment. So mostly I would say deal with the issues as they come, in the best way possible, looking at the variables and hope that in the end your relationship would come out stronger

    I have always said that there is no straight way to handle difficult relationships. There are a lot of variables involved. These are variables are, but not limited to, the persons involved, their xter, their response to issues, the issue(s) and the environment. So dependent on these variables, we deal with each aspect of our relationships. We only have to pray that each time we are able to solve them and come out stronger in our relationships.

    Even if I don’t talk to you about it immediately,I’ll definitely talk to you about it before the day ends because I realized that carrying it at the back of your mind wouldn’t help the relationship/friendship grow cos u will definitely explode one day….we are all humans

      I think that would be a good idea, but what if you still feel strongly about it by the end of the day? Would you still talk about it?

    Well I just feel it all depends on who the person we are in a relationship with is to us and that has a lot to do with our value system. Also, our own temperament plays a role on how we handle different people. Finally context matters, meaning that, the same thing can happen between two friends, at different times, in different places and they would both react differentntly. Good relationships are never easy, but that’s what makes them good, because we have to put a lot of work into them to make something of them. There will always be that difficult person in your life, could be a wife, husband, child, mother-in-law, uncle name them. Most times you just have to decide if the person is worth you sticking around and prepare yourself to handle that person as well as accepting that the person may never change.
