Friendship /relationship blip

Is it only me or does anyone have issues with people around them, either family members or friends that always think and have to be "right" act as they know it all and even when proved that they are incorrect, will still argue the point 🤣I know this scenario sounds silly but it's starting to make me anxious, and when unwell I really am finding things /situations hard to cope with.

    @Tammyjane33 It is not silly. My eldest brother is very much like that. I solved it by not seeing him very often.  Could you cut down the amount of contact you have with the person who does this to you ? Take care.

    I have the same issue at the moment - very argumentative person and always right - similar to you it makes me unwell as argument or conflict makes me ill

    Luckily for me it’s just a family member staying for a couple of weeks so I tend to just agree with them to keep them quiet in the knowledge that they will be gone in a few more days

    Maybe that’s something you could try?

    I accept sometimes it’s hard to agree even if you are pretending but worth a try maybe

    I have the same problem my brother knows everything, luckily now our parents have both passed away we see very little of each other, truth be told I've never got on with him.

    Be kind to newer members
