In a relationship that you truly care about it is best to choose your fights wisely. Little disagreements can sometimes turn into big arguments. At this some point you have to ask yourself how important is the point I'm trying to make? Is this something that needs to be ratified because if it isn't it could cause physical injury, financial loss, or emotional harm? If not it may be best just to let it and let your partner be the winner of this one.

I agree absolutely that sometimes you have to let the little disagreements go before it turns into a big fight. Sometimes to win you have to lose. There are times if you continue to be stubborn and want your way, you might end up losing in the relationship even if you've won the argument. It's better just to lose some arguments to save the relationship. What's important is the relationship.

Yes, this is something that i think all people would be better off realizing. Silly little things just really aren't worth the problems and stress they cause in a relationship. I wish i had known/realized this in some of my previous relationships when i was younger, but alas, this seems to be something that you learn through experience and as you age.

It is always better to choose your fights wisely. There are always going to be issues that cause conflict when dealing with people. You cannot attack and address every single situation or you will go nuts. You also cannot let the important stuff go by without addressing them if they are causing you undue stress.
