I witnessed a rough argument today. I feel pretty battered by it. It started off with hostility and it never got any better.
Gottman calls it a harsh start up. Basically if you start angry then it’s not likely that your “discussion” is going to end well.
I should have caught it and asked people to take a break. Instead I kept trying to calm people down and inject some reasoning.
Heated arguments just cause destruction.
Discussions invariably end on the same note as they begin. John Gottman
