How to Win an Argument

I Light LLC, Therapy Blog - How to Win an Argument

In the midst of an argument we are so frustrated that the other person is not actually hearing or understanding what we are saying.

So what happens?

Voices get raised and all we want is to win this over and for that person to see it from our side.

Isn't that the truth?

And obviously we are right and have every reason to be angry.

Here's the thing-

Sure you may feel you have a right to be mad, and sure you may feel you are right. Most likely though, so does the other person you are in disagreement with.

So the truth then is-

Look at what is right for each person. In an argument there tends to be a misunderstanding which fuels the escalation of the situation so what better way to make sure each person is understood. Every person wants to be seen and heard especially when fired up.
