[Say No to “Fight”, Keep “Peace” in Room]
By: CHEN Yanyu, Violet (Lee Shau Kee Hall)
Talking to the stars in sky, you fall in sleep with the gentle “good night” of your roommate every night.
Sharing the first warm sunshine, you come to yourself with the energetic “good morning” of your roommate every morning.
It is the little room of you and your roommate that is a haven for you on campus.
However, whether it comes in form of a cold war or quarrel, arguments and conflicts are always unpredictable in your life. But try to calm yourself and learn to be tolerant, for your lovely friendship. Here are some tips for you when you get involved in an argument or conflict with your roommate.
- Calm yourself and try to identify the root cause of your argument or conflict. It takes two to tango. Both of you may make faults leading to conflict and contradiction.
- Write down words that cannot come out verbally because you feel awkward. The power of words is amazing. Whether it is a short note or long letter, you may solve the conflict or argument as long as you write it with all your heart.
- Learn to be tolerant. Weigh the friendship of you two and the matter in face of matters irrelevant principles. As the old saying goes: back step the boundlessness.
