When somebody nag at you do you talk back or you just stop and listen. Here in our house because we are big family(15 all). In everyday there is confrontation and argues but never we end without reconciliation. Everyone of us never hesitate to say sorry or ask an apology. What about you? Do you have control on you emotion or you are the type that talk when you think you're right!

When there is a situation like this at home, yes I do nag. I answer with a nag but I stop when someone is talking. I listen and answer their accusations. Of course, I will fight for my right. I reason out, but I try to stop and listen because they only have reasons and sometimes these problems are just becoming big because of misunderstanding,It is still good to listen to solve it and to cool it down.

If its something that is not really important, then i would try to just be silent and let them talk, or excuse myself. It's very easy to excuse yourself, with any number of reasons. If i know that i am right, then yes, i will stay and often times try to talk to the person. If you are wrong or not sure, then listening might help the other person.

Yup! That's better to avoid bad conversation that might end up to conflict.

I kinda stutter when i shout and get angry that i end up laughing which destroys the momentum and it makes me look crazy. So i prefer to stop, listen or "pretend" to listen then walk out. LOL.Ü

I love to talk and it is very good that you are staying with a huge number of fmaily members and some time it has some disadvantages also what ever it may be but you are lucky to spend a lot of time when i feel that It is nothing serious or hurting any body's emotion then I keep my mouth shut but when i see I should talk or interfere I definitely say

Yeah! To talk means not to quarrel only to express the feeling and idea. Thank you for responding here!
