      I appreciate both the simplicity but profound practicality of the advice that sometimes it’s just best to minimize and abandon an argument. If not only because usually in those cases the thing you’re arguing about isn’t even the thing you’re arguing about.

        Agree! Refreshing to hear this is an appropriate strategy for certain cases

      Really good strategies and advice. I have personally experienced the power of forgiveness and how it has benefitted me. Holding on to unresolved anger feels toxic to my entire energy system. Stops the flow.
