OBSERVE: Are you both Calm?
When we are in fight / flight / freeze mode
and adrenaline is coursing through our body,
our rational mind takes a back seat.
This moment is never a good time to try and resolve conflict.
Sometimes it is unavoidable, but whenever it is even remotely possible,
ensure that you are somewhat composed before interacting with someone else.
And, even if you are, make sure they are as well.
If need be, go to your separate corners until cooler heads prevail.
Although, do not let the topic go undiscussed.
