Why it’s okay to argue

Arguing is an unpleasant activity that usually ends in someone feeling unheard and upset. However, arguing doesn't necessarily have to be that way. What does it really mean t argue. It means that two people have different points of views and are each expressing those points of view at the same time. There is nothing wrong with having a different point of view. Different ideas, in fact, can lead to wonderful discussions and insightful discoveries at work and at home. The problem is that when you do it at the SAME TIME neither person is given the opportunity to hear the other person fully and understand their point of view. Then they end up missing out on the information. So, if you're going to argue, just make sure you take turns talking and listening to each other fully!
