It sounds like they may need to manage their disagreements in a better way. It is difficult especially when you’re close to someone because, being so familiar with the other person it is all too easy to lose one’s temper and end up in a full on argument. There is no excuse for physical fighting and if that is the case help may be needed. Someone once told me knowing how to argue appropriately is an art and I’m inclined to agree; knowing one’s limitations is part of it.

I think so. Friends should know their limits too and I think everyone should be aware about it. Limits are needed in all things. There should always be limitations. One should know his limits in order for him not to hurt someone's feelings. He should not go beyond boundaries. That's why it pays to be sensitive sometimes. We should know how someone feels and know the limitations in order to avoid conflicts and misunderstandings.

anshulmahajan If a friend is really a friend to start with no way would he or she be bullying his or her friend. Not a matter of limits so much as a matter of people knowing what true friendship is and bullying is not in the provinnce of bullying. One thing to gently suggest to my best friend that I think she should do so and so, but my friendship would never stoop to fussing with her over any issue.Respect is what you need in a true friendship. If you have true respect for a friend you would never push your ideas on to them, you might suggest but if your friend does not like your suggestion you both have enough respect for each other that you will not bother her further with your own ideas. Men I think have a tendency to call mere acquiantances friends and some times they really are not true friends.
