Arguments can be strangely exhilarating, yeah? I think it’s a sad truth, that it takes something so emotionally detrimental to get us to feel things. I didn’t realize how often it happened until recently; my arguments with my mother have lately been scare to say the least. Not that I’m complaining, quite the opposite, but I think I do miss that emotional outlet, and I’m starting to think that I’m not the only one. I was talking to a friend last night and she told me how a boy just won’t give her the benefit of letting her be right, and she knows it’s on purpose, as she does the same to him. She hates him for it, though she still finds herself liking him at the end of the day. As I told her then, and I’ll tell you now, that’s an argument waiting to happen. Sadly, I think that’s why they do it. Neither one can say what they really need to the other, so I think both of them are just waiting on the other to cave. Though really, is it really necessary to fight to get a point across. Let’s not ask parents, I think they’d all say yes because if there’s no heated exchange of emotions we’re obviously not listening to anything that they could ever say. Arguments do build up to a nice conversation, after it’s all blown over, though, to have to argue to get there, man, is that exhausting! Who agrees to disagree with me?
