Have you ever gotten into a knockdown, drag-out fight with your best friend? Well I have, and it was hands down the worst feeling in the world. If your an avid Sex and the City watcher, chances are you'll remember this fight between Carrie and Miranda.
While fighting is perfectly normal in every relationship, not letting them get out of control takes some tact. To see DearSugar's advice on how to avoid a confrontation like this, read more.
Even when you have that unbreakable bond of friendship with your BFF, fights are inevitable, especially when one person doesn't approve of the others romantic relationship. In this situation, Miranda has seen Mr. Big hurt Carrie time and time again, and as the one whose always been there to comfort her, she's vehemently skeptical of them getting back together. But instead of talking to her with a cool head, she let her frustration get the best of her. It's pretty clear that Miranda had some strong opinions about their relationship, but by bottling them up inside, she couldn't help but explode when all Carrie really needed was the support of her best friend.
As we all know, words hurt and in the heat of the moment, nasty insults can easily make a situation like this worse. As a rule of thumb, avoid letting your emotions fester — instead voice your concerns before they turn a simple difference of opinion into a full-fledged battle. Also, if you're being hurt by your loved one, try not to hurt them back in return just to prove a point — as the old grade-school saying goes, two wrongs don't make a right. Even though there's no way to avoid fighting with your friends, always try to take things into perspective. Remember that you don't have to agree with every little thing they say or do, but when it comes down to it, being a good friend means you'll always be there for each other.
So have you ever gotten into a fight like this with your best friend? If so, how did you make up?
