Misunderstandings and conflicts are very common in family life and in friendship. It occurs within partners, friends and neighbours too..If you had something like that, will you be the first one to come down and talk to the other person? Or will you wait for the other person to talk with you first?

Hello smilyn! Well, it depends on certain factors. If I know that I am the one who caused the conflict, I will humbly ask for apology. In some cases when I am not the one who caused the conflict, it would also depend on with whom I have a conflict with. If it's a member of the family or a friend of mine or even my boyfriend, I would make sure that the day wouldn't end without me talking to them.

couple - Walking through the life
It is good to be first in compromising with family members. I have heard of a couple who would be competing in compromising. Both the husand and the wife love each other very much. If they had a conflict, it would not even last for more than 5 minutes, because both would be trying to console each other and get compromised.

That all depende. When the conflict is with someone close to me like my husband or child, I am usually the first to go to them. Whether I'd be right or wrong. I do this because I cannot stand being at war with anyone in my family. Now, if it is with just any other average person or even a friend or aquantice, it depends on if I am right or wrong. If I believe I was at fault, I will definitely talk to them first. I tend to feel guilty.But, if it was their fault,or they were in the wrong, then I would expect them to come to me.

You have got a good maturity of mind. It is not good to have a misunderstanding or conflict continuing for hours in the family. So it is always better to put a full stop as early as possible. And there is no harm is coming to a compromise quickly.
