Be Calm at The Time of Choas
Being calm at a time of chaos is a virtue. By doing this, you’ll make sure to make yourself at peace while the one who’s getting angry is at loss.
It’s a win-win situation for all as you’ll get to have your peace of mind and the other one gets to vent out properly. This should only be done with a close someone who really needs it and not with anyone who should be taking undue advantage of the same.
Mindful of The Words That You Use
In a heated argument, we mean to say things that we don’t intend to, just out of spite. So, keeping a check on your words becomes the prime responsibility for anyone during an argument.
Reflect Upon Yourself
Sometimes the anger might be justified and caused due to your own wrongdoings. Maybe you’re not listening enough, doing enough, or fail to meet the bare minimum expectations.
So, in cases like these, what you can do is open yourself up for a reflection and get to the core of the problem. Getting to the problem will calm the other person down as they just want you to own up to your shortcomings.
Bring Up The Matter at a Suitable Time
Being calm, rational, and having a reflection upon yourself doesn’t state that you’re not to feel about getting yelled at. It just means that instead of escalating the argument, you can take a loss and bring up the matter at a time that is suitable for having a normal conversation.
Simply Walk Away
Sometimes it’s not worth doing anything during a heated argument and the only way left for you is to turn your back and move away. So, when you feel like it, don’t hesitate, just simply walk away.
Turn Serious Into Funny
If you’re funny bone and have the capability of turning a dire situation into a fit of laughter for everyone, do that. It’s one of the most effective ways of turning the situation around.
Just make sure that you’re not mocking or hurting the sentiments of someone you care and you’ll be good to go. Afterall, who doesn’t want a good dose of laughter?
If you get the intuition that the anger is unjustified and will turn into something gruesome which might turn into harming you mentally or physically then you need to take control of the situation.
Start with establishing your authority that you’re not a punching bag for their emotionally scarred self and that you’re not someone to bullshit with. Establish boundaries and make sure that the other person knows that you’re not someone they can toy with and getaway.
It is necessary to take control of the situation sometimes for otherwise the situation can turn visibly wrong and even going up to a fatal incident.
