If only people in life having disputes the world would not fight they would be a better place. People never want to just discuss. They feel the need to get their point across, be heard and understood whether right or wrong. Life could be so much easier if people would help each other and try to understand. For example, a man in Italy went to the ER. Due to the system, he ended up tired of waiting. He needed attention because he was actually suicidal. When he gave up he went to the grocery and stabbed several people and killed one. It might never have happened if someone took the time to speak to him and try to understand his issues. If they had been able to answer his needs and he may have felt satisfied enough to not seek revenge through his anger. When we were in elementary school, and it is still true today, when children disagree the teachers make them sit down and talk it over. Even if they do not like what the other child is saying, they are forced to listen which is a positive action. This is also true with marriages. The couples do argue but then resentment builds up and before long it really doesn’t matter if they decide to talk it over. Their feelings are so deeply imbedded that there often ends up being no solution. If they go to counselling they may work it out. Unfortunately, in any given situation, one person will refuse. Then years of positive memories are gone and all that is left is bitterness. One of the points I put in any Good Gus series book was always talk it over just as Sheriff Gus did in ‘Pecos Meets Bad Bart.’ The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones. Hard copies, personally autographed, are available through our website www.goodgusbooks.com along with past blogs for your reading enjoyment. Digitizing for all the books is coming soon!
