From yesterday: How do we draw accurate conclusions about what has taken place during a fight?
If both parties are at least a bit wrong in every confrontation, then that means the truth of the situation does not exist on the side of either person but, instead, somewhere in the middle.
In order to draw accurate conclusions about a fight both parties must be committed to an ongoing dialogue and both parties must remain legitimately open to what the other party has to say. The only way to find truth is to cooperatively navigate through the filth of what transpired.
If one side or the other is not committed to the process, both will be abandoned to guesswork and confusion. Neither of these serves a relationship well.
