These two words (above) will allow you to control a conflict. For once they come out of your mouth, paper, or text it’s finished on your end. If they don’t accept your words then it’s all on them, not you. Of course, certain actions and words require more than a two-word response as there are jails with individuals who still need to pay their time but for “normal conflicts” (no bodies left behind) these two words will due. “I’m sorry” may appear painful to say but could be worse for those that have to end the conflicts especially if they’re the ones with the bats (not literally).
FOOTNOTE- You always can be sorry for how your words and actions made the other one feel even if you still feel it’s stupid.
