Did you ever have an argument with someone where you just knew you were right? We've all been there, right? Our friend is so wrong, they don't even know how wrong they are, and yet, because they are our friend, we need to come to a compromise. It's a tough situation.
Here's a quote I found on this very subject.
"The best way to win an argument is to begin by being right..." ~ Jill Ruckelshaus
On the surface, when we know we're right, it's that much more difficult to come to an understanding. When you fight and your friend won't make up with you, it can be one of the worst feelings. You just want to shake your head and say, "What is wrong with you?" But when you're arguing, the key to "winning" is to put the big picture above the one you're arguing about. In other words, which is more important? The argument you're having, or your friendship?
