You know sometimes the way forward after a misunderstanding or an argument, is to just apologise. Even if you are not in the wrong. What is the cost of you apologising, perhaps a bruise on your ego? Isn’t that a small price to pay to move things along? Well, unless the relationship is not important to you, by all means, do whatever you feel is right. But if it is, then perhaps you might want to try it. To make the first move. In no way are you losing, in actual fact, you are the winner. Because in this invisible game of tug of war, you have let go of the burden of having a strained relationship and undoubtedly place the ball at the other person’s corner. So you have done your part. Now, it depends what the other person does in return. Either way, you have already ‘won’.
