Get rid of friend drama once and for all

 

Having really close best friends is the best thing in the world, but sometimes the times come where we get might have some sort of conflict. And a lot of the time we don't know how to handle it. Things definitely get awkward between your friend group and there is tension but communication is key! Here are some ways to deal with it without the drama.

1. Talk about it in person. Texting creates so much misunderstanding and it is really hard to see the other person's point of view when you are behind a screen. Giving them the silent treatment isn't a good idea either. Talk to your friend in person, give each other turns to state what is going on in their head and stay calm while they are talking.

2. Try to understand the other persons point of view. Putting yourself in someone else's shoes amd thinking about how you would feel if you were in their position is a great way to get a view of what is going on. Doing that makes you aware of how they may be feeling and vice versa.

3. Focus on the bigger picture. Will the argument really matter next week (be honest!)? If it is a miniscule issue, it's really important to let it go. Little grudges can grow into a much bigger deal than they should be and that's never good for a relationship.

4. Apologize. In the end, it is important that a resolution is initiated and that apologies are being made so that there is no more tension or bad blood. An apology is much more important to your friendship than your pride or holding grudges so being the bigger person and say you're sorry.

It may not be easy at first, but having great friends is a blessing, and it's not right to lose them over a small argument.
