Sometimes, a nice meeting of the minds is just never going to happen. So, don't push it. Try to forgive the other person and let it go. Forgiving doesn't mean opening yourself up to being walked on – it only means that you set aside your resentment and anger. There’s nothing wrong with treating Aunt Beulah with kid gloves – if you know what sets her off on her tirades against your father. There’s nothing wrong in being careful in what you expect from such a person in the future. Be wise.
Love one another! How?»
