I’ve noticed myself distancing from the idea of arguing and fighting. Although always rebellious and still argumentative in the middle of a heated argument, I am doing more to prevent the arguing from even taking place – or trying, at least.
It’s not perfect but it’s a change that I guess occurred gradually and I just now realized it. It’s certainly a positive change but one that has been difficult, at best, sometimes especially considering how much I tend to argue reflexively. Sometimes I still find myself frustrated because I am caught up in the middle of an argument but cannot seem to stop, thus only becoming more frustrated.
Still, it’s a step in the right direction.
