I was discussing and arguing last night with my brother about many different things. He says its always best to discuss and talk to find common ground to solve conflicts . I thought it sounded to much a cliche and if it were only that easy there wouldnt be any . We got stuck after a while. i dont know what makes it that way for i was a good listener i think but maybe family is sometimes too close and too delicate an arena for some topics of current state of things in the nation. I think maybe some of you out there know some general strategies that work on conflicts small medium and big. What methods do you guys like that can make 'stuckness' go away ?
