Why do you think people argue about insignificant things? A person may feel slighted and start an argument which may escalate. Couples tend to have disagreements that start out over something small and before they realize it they are raising their voices, calling each other names and saying terrible things. In life, on many of the videos on Facebook, people dispute insignificant things such as food in a restaurant, portions, attitudes of others and more with no real meaning or purpose and it never ends well. Families dispute more often than they should. One of the reasons I wrote “Misplaced Trust,” was that clients took small, minor unimportant things and blew them really out of proportion. They would argue about household items, tools, china, sterling silver, paintings by unknown artists, etc. Yet, none of this mattered in the end. If they said their parents wanted them to have it but it was listed anywhere, a huge fight would ensue. Do you really think the people who had passed wanted this? In my book there is a story about a woman who looked after her mother. In addition, this woman had a special needs son who needed her care. Her sister lived thousands of miles away. Once the sister found out their mother was ill, she and her daughter flew out to Orange County. As soon as they arrived everything turned ugly. The sister and her adult daughter began marking items, packing them and shipping them, and causing trouble with the very ill mother and her neighbors. The absolute worst part of all this is that the mother had to endure all of this horrific treatment. It is sad how people behave. If anyone starts an argument with you, stop and think is it worth it to discuss? As we all age we learn that fighting is a useless waste of time, don’t you agree?
