Get Over It


Really? Just Get Over It


This morning, I drove my wife into work because of the ice and snow. On the way back, I was listening to the radio and Michael Jackson’s song “Beat It” came on. Now, Jackson has some great music, but it this song that got me thinking today.

In our lives we will have an argument with someone we really care for. Sometimes we can mend the issues and move on. Other times, we just can’t get over the hurdle and can’t stop the fighting. This could your spouse, your sibling, or a best friend.

One thing Alyssa (my wife) and I do whenever we have an issue , is take the time to talk it out. My father always said never let the sun set on a friend. Which I may have once or twice, but never on my wife. Some people are just to important to let the sun set on.

At times we get so caught up in the drama that we just fight to fight with never really making up. The reason why Alyssa and I are so strong is because we communicate every detail of an issue, no matter how big or small. This has been the key to our relationship. Don’t swear at each other, slam doors, or walk away mad.

Some of you are probably thinking, “Sure, James I am sure you do that and just perfect.” It’s true though and it’s not hard to do it at all. You just need to swallow your pride and get over your issues. Talk out your issues if the person really matters to you. Though it’s a two-way street, they need to do the same thing. That is the tricky part, getting the other side to communicate with you.

In a relationship, it’s good to discuss those rules of how to handle issues. Good to be prepared, because you are going to have arguments no matter what. Just take the time to handle them on both ends. It’s a key piece in any form of relationship.

In recap, drop your pride, get over it, and talk out your issues. You aren’t less of a man or woman if you discuss what is going on. Just remember whatever you say, you have to be willing to listen to the other party involved. Don’t forget the two-way street and both sides has a view-point. Meet in the middle.

Getting over your issues and talking it out is just a small step into this Savage World; that you are no longer living in, but beginning to own!
