Sometimes old problems come back to haunt us. Fights we had with people in our community, and then they left. It was an ugly scene and best forgotten. What if you meet old foes again later in life?
Best make sure that old problems don't come back to haunt you:
- ForgiveAndForget -- make sure your learn from the conflict what you can and then choose to remember the general problem, the solutions, and maybe an anonymized case story, but delete the personal references.
- PartingTerms -- make sure you at least part in neutral terms. See PullOut for for more.
- FlameBait -- don't take it; make sure the conversation gets cooler and slower towards the end.
