Model for resolving conflict
I and Ana have been friend for almost forever. We are very close and even though we argue very often we always find the way to resolve our conflict. But this time it has been two month since I talked to her, our argument is always the same, which I feel is kind of nonsense. I always have to be the one who texts or calls her. If I won’t do it at least every other day, she gets upset but it never occurs to her that she can be the one who texts me first. We had a lot of discussions about this subject. I understand that she has two kids and maybe she has more problems than I do but instead of writing Facebook posts ten times a day she could take two minutes to ask me how am I doing. If she does not want to text me first at least do not argue with me when I text: that am the one who does not put enough effort in our friendship.
It is going to be little bit hard for me to resolve this conflict. But probably I will text her first and ask her if she can meet me, so we can talk. We have been friends for a long time I am her maid of honor and godmother of her baby girl. We have been through a lot and even thought I am upset I don’t won’t to lose her. We might be different from each other but we also have a lot of things in common. I feel like this issue is not big enough to be worth of ending our friendship.
When we meet I will explain the situation to her once again and probably will ask her that she should stop acting the way she does. Also I will explain to her that I should not be the one who texts first all the time. At the same time I want to know what she thinks and if there is anything I should be doing differently.
I hope that we will be able to resolve our conflict.
