How to Have the Last Word“It’s so hard to do and so easy to say, but sometimes you just have to walk away.”
Ben Harper sure got it right when he sang those words. I think we all know this to be true, but putting it into action is really difficult.
Oftentimes in an argument, we continue to engage just for the sake of arguing. We may have even forgotten the issue that led to the disagreement to begin with. But we become so consumed with having the last word that we just keep on fighting.Sometimes the best thing we can do is just walk away.
It can take every fiber in our being to be strong enough to do this. But when our argument is spiraling into name-calling or personal attacks, it’s time to walk away. The real issue has been lost, and we need to be strong enough to put an end to the destruction.
When we’re strong enough to know when to walk away, we can have the last word without saying anything at all. Let's let our departure do all the talking for us. #lastword #walkaway #kurtstips
