If this were to happen, of course, the hostility would be sharpened. If you’re in that situation, here are five taboos when you’re having a disagreement.
1. Spreading disgrace
Having disagreements and opinions with other people does sound annoying. Just because a speck of problems in the end actually trigger feelings of mutual hatred for each other. In fact, it is not uncommon for this mutual hatred to lead to various bad behaviors that can harm each other.
Being in a situation of disagreement, the taboo that must always be remembered is not to spread disgrace, especially when it comes to matters of privacy. However, that is not a wise attitude. Instead of the problem getting resolved, the dispute is actually getting sharper.
