Thanks for the advice. I am a trained Conflict REsolution instructor so
I know what you're saying. The first question to ask, however, is Do you
want to solve the problem? If the other person is not willing to come to
a compromise or consensus, there is little room for discussion. I did
apologize for blowing up, I did explain, several times my point of view.
He was not willing to give an inch. End of discussion. Perhaps a prayer
or two would help.
