There have been situations in people’s lives where they encounter individuals who always state they are the ones who are right and prove that you are wrong. The wrongness can be related to an opinion, research, perception, place, people etc. The person in front of you sometimes becomes so rigid in their decision and results that they fail to hear what the other person has to say in his defence. They might even refuse to hear their side of the story. This can end up in a heated argument if you do not behave in the desired manner. This article will help to deal with such situations and provide you excellent tips to react to the accusations thrown at you. Thus, these tips will help you to improve your overall social life.
How to deal with conflict and improve your social life?
1. Check yourself
It is likely that sometimes we think that we are right but actually we are not. So whenever someone accuses you or tries to point out that you are wrong, you should first listen to that person quietly if you are not fully aware of the situation and then judge whether that person is right or wrong. You should go through each and every minute details and ask yourself the question, ‘Am I really right?’. And then when you know that you are right, you should prove it without making any assumptions but with solid proofs.
2. Do not take things at heart
It is quite possible that we might end up being emotional when people hold us wrong for some reasons. The situation worsens when you know that you are right and therefore you feel more depressed. In this state of sadness, we normally react aggressively against our accuser. The advice is that you should maintain your calm and stay quiet because it may lead to a serious argument.
3. The weight of the issue
If you feel that trying to prove yourself is not actually required then you can just ignore the topic and move on. Unless the issue is serious and requires much-needed clarification and accuracy, you should not jump into an argument to prove yourself right. Doing that will lead to mighty quarrels which had started only because of petty issues, about which you will regret later.
4. Type of the issue
Here, you should whether the point about which you are proved wrong is factual based or opinion based. If you are into a factual argument where you are discussing the scientific, mathematical, geographical or historical facts and figures, you should be careful about what you speak and the authenticity of every word spoken by you. It is absolutely rational to prove your point with the required proofs in this regard. However, if the issue is opinion based, the person in front of you may disagree with your perception or opinions, therefore the wisest action is to accept the opinions of the person and do not prolong the discussion.
5. The person matters
Your responses to the person who proves you wrong matters the most. If it is your family member or friends or people whom you meet on a daily basis, then you need to actually explain to them why you are right. As they are the people who see you every day, it is extremely important that they don’t have a bad and unhealthy image of yours in their minds. You need to sit with them peacefully and clear it out. However, if an unknown person or a person who seems unimportant to you, accuses you-you should just turn a deaf ear to them as their opinions do not matter to you because you are not here to please such people.
6. Having a control over body language
Body Language plays a very important role during job interviews and business presentations. It displays your confidence and attitude towards a particular situation. While dealing with negative people or people who prove you wrong, you have to control your body language, your voice tone, your gestures and your facial expressions. A slip in your body language can aggravate the situation and give a bait to the person in front of you to become angry. It is essential that you keep your body language as relaxed as possible which will prevent heating up the debate and also does not allow the person to give a negative response.
No matter what, how much you ignore, such situations and people will keep on coming and going out of your life. It is up to you whether you wish to resolve it peacefully or act in an aggressive manner and worsen the situation as well as relations with those people. However, dealing with such conditions makes us strong enough to face the world and mould ourselves into a better human being.
