Stupid Fights: How To Get Over Them

I can't tell you how many stupid arguments I have gotten into with my friends.

They usually end with one of us googling the answer and no matter who is right we both feel horrible afterwards. I'm laughing thinking back at how dumb we were, but in the moment I was so angry!!

Here are a few ways to acknowledge, accept, and move on from one of those arguments.

1. Admit that the issue is bigger than the argument.

You're arguing over something so minuscule and stupid and chances are both of you are aware of that. Own up to it and explain what really set you off. Maybe it was something they said a few days ago that you haven't let go of, maybe you're hungry, maybe you just feel like arguing even though its dumb.

2. Ask for what you need.

Do you need a second to cool off, to be alone? Does your partner need you to tell a really lame joke? Do you both just need to admit its stupid, go get a coffee, and chill?
Tell them what you need and tell them you'll be ready to be reasonable afterwards.

3. Apologize again.

No matter whose fault it was, be the bigger person. Even if you already made up and said you'd move past it, send one last apology text to make sure everything is okay. Even just 'sorry about today, I was being lame' is enough!

4. Actually end it.

Don't hold a grudge. If you're really still pissed, continue to talk it out. There is nothing worse than a tiny thing that pisses you off, left to fester and grow, making you feel dumb bringing it up again and you still feel angry! It's a recipe for disaster.
Make sure the argument is over and both sides are actually cool again. Remember the 'never go to bed angry' phrase!

5. Don't bring it up again

Unless you're really, really sure they can take the joke, don't bring the argument up again. Especially not in a way that opens that argument all over again! Just admit you two were equally dumb and move past it. Learn from the mistake and try to grow from it.

Have you ever fought about something really stupid with your friends or significant other?

Last-Minute Gifting Ideas
Brainstorming for some special gifts for your loved ones can be difficult at times especially if it's very last minute! There come many occasions where we are bound to gift our loved ones or our partners but we run out of ideas or there is so little time left. This article might turn out to be useful for you and give some inspiration to pick out some last-minute gifts for your loved ones. 1) Perfume I know it is a very common gift but it is a no-brainer and actually a very useful gift. You’ve got to make sure that it is a fragrance which is suitable for all occasions and mostly everywhere they go. The fragrance should at least last 8 to 10 hours. You can select from the wide range of perfume choices from this amazing alternative to eBay. 2) Personalized Cuff Links Giving something personalized adds a little personal touch to it which makes the gift all the more meaningful. There are various websites that design personalized cuff links with initials on them. I understand that getting something personalized is not possible last minute but you can always look for other designs across the web too. 3) Electronic Gadgets Gifting gadgets is a really cool option as well. If you specifically know what the other person wants then you can go for that as well. If they are into PlayStation or video games, you can gift them a PS5 if you have your budget. It would be a really cool gifting option. 4) Airpods or Headphones If your loved ones are really into music or love to have some music while working out or doing some chores, this would be the best gift for them. You would find various color options and models, make sure you choose the best one! 5) Kindle If your loved ones are into reading books a lot, this would be the perfect option for them. Most of the time, book lovers get short of space to store their books. In such cases, Kindle comes much handy. It takes minimal space and stores a maximum number of books. 6) Coffee Machine There are so many people who are immense coffee lovers. But it gets difficult to spend money each time they need to drink coffee or spend so much time beating it to get it ready. In such cases, gift them a coffee machine and they would be the happiest people on this planet. 7) Chocolates and Flowers Now I know it is a very easy-peasy option but for the last minute, it can do wonders and you can never go wrong with it. Because ultimately it is the thought process and feelings behind it that counts, isn’t it? So pick out their favorite chocolates and a super elegant flower arrangement and you’re good to go. 8) Watch I personally really like watches. If your loved one is a watch person or if they don’t have any watches yet, you can help them build a watch collection. So, this is a great idea too. You can find a wide variety of watches online as well as from your nearby shops. These were some last-minute options that would never go wrong. I really hope I came out as a help to you in finding a perfect gift for your loved ones last minute. So, get some amazing gifts for them!
