Breathe


I see your face in my mind as I drive away,
Cause no one of us thought it was gonna end that way.
People are people and sometimes we change our minds.
But it’s killing me to see you go after all this time.

Hmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm (2x)

Music starts playin’ like the end of a sad movie,
It’s the kinda ending you don’t really wanna see.
Cause it’s tragedy and it’ll only bring you down,
Now I don’t know what to be without you around.

And we know it’s never simple never easy.
Never a clean break, no one here to save me.
You’re the only thing I know like the back of my hand,
And I can’t,
Breathe, without you,
But I have to,
Breathe, without you,
But I have to.

Never wanted this, never wanna see you hurt.
Every little bump in the road I tried to swerve.
But people are people,
And sometimes it doesn’t work out,
Nothing we say is gonna save us from the fall out.

And we know it’s never simple,
Never easy.
Never a clean break, no one here to save me.
You’re the only thing I know like the back of my hand,
And I can’t,
Breathe, without you,
But I have to,
Breathe, without you,
But I have to.

It’s two a.m.
Feelin’ like I just lost a friend.
Hope you know it’s not easy,
Easy for me.
It’s two a.m.
Feelin’ like I just lost a friend.
Hope you know this ain’t easy,
Easy for me.

And we know it’s never simple, never easy.
Never a clean break, no one here to save me.

Ohhh

I can’t,
Breathe, without you,
But I have to,
Breathe, without you,
But I have to.

Sorry (oh) Sorry (mmm)
Sorry (eh eh) Sorry (mmm)
Sorry (eh eh) Sorry (mmm)
Sorry

How to handle an argument


People cannot always be of the same opinion and that holds true for professional life as well.
Colleagues having different views is very much part and parcel of everyday working life.
What is the best way of conducting an argument when people have different opinions?
Is it true to say that “anyone who raises their voice is in the wrong”?
The following tips may help to calm things down if you get into an argument

1. Always try to reach a consensus – rather than win the argument – if people have different views

2. Avoid polarization and do not insist on your point of view

3. Be open to other people’s opinions

4. Resist any temptation to get into rivalry games and avoid dominant behavior

5. Express your point of view openly and clearly

6. Pay attention to what the other person is saying

7. Remain calm and never raise your voice

8. Articulate your view objectively and avoid making personal remarks

Although it might be difficult on occasion, remain calm at all times.

If it is proving difficult to reach agreement, you may be able to take the heat out of many an argument by saying something like: “I’m afraid we will have to agree to disagree on this point. Could we perhaps agree on the following compromise…?”

When involved in an argument, try, if possible, to avoid negative phrases like: “That’s not possible” or “That’s not true” and negative words such as “no”, “wrong” or “on the contrary”.

It is better to use terms that underline what you have in common, such as “and”, “we”, “likewise”, “gladly”. That keeps relations on a good footing, even in difficult discussions.
