How to quarrel—and how not to

From the November 1994 issue of The Christian Science Journal


How many times have we wished we could take back words we've said, cancel reactions, perhaps even start a relationship over again? Most of us can probably think of quarrels we could have prevented by more patience, compassion, understanding, humor, or humility. While some believe that letting anger out is therapeutic, most people would probably agree that the genuine exercise of these gentler qualities is more likely to bring peaceful relations with others.
