Relationships: How to Argue Better

Kids fighting

Inspiration from Chris Brogan’s Blog Topics. You should get your copy for endless blog topics.

Arguing is in our nature. So is our self-centeredness.

Children tussling over a toy and exclaiming “mine” is a very early shared experience.

However, arguing can yield benefits. It helps us investigate, analyze, learn, and grow.

Unfortunately, if we lead an argument with our selfish nature we tear down relationships.

Quite to the contrary, an argument that leads with curiosity, consideration for counterpoints, and not without the intent to win grows us and our relationships.

How do you argue?
