Self defense is nature's oldest mechanism, in an argument you need to be aware of it in a few ways: • Don't weaponize your grace. If you've done something good in the past, don't use it as leverage later. • Take care of your temper. Anger is a legitimate emotion but just because you feel it doesn't mean that others have to deal with it. • Storming out is a bad look. • When you're wrong, just admit it and move on.
The greatest weapon you have in an argument is also your greatest weakness. It's our instinct for self defense. Don't let it get to you.
