There are many times in our lives when we could use an ear to listen and help us through the things that we are struggling with. I can do that.

Each member of a family has their own personality and individual views etc, it's understandable that sometimes these things clash. We can sometimes feel especially strong or defensive during arguments with family and perhaps we are less likely to back down around people we know so well.
There could be a lot of reasons but maybe it's just because many parties are feeling unheard and everyone wants to get their way. With issues of communication and lack of willingness to cooperate issues very rarely get resolved
Because sometimes the argument is not the real issue and either people are unaware of the real issue or it's to difficult to talk about so they argue over something else in order to avoid the true issue.
Sometimes people have a strong difference in opinion and they don't care who gets stuck in the middle as a result.
Some people just don't get along. I'm a firm believer in the Zodiac signs. Some certain signs get along better with others, while some don't. However, arguing bases upon many things, such as conflicts of interest, etc.
Families argue with each other because they love each other. Even when there is so much conflict and disagreement and differences, we are built to love our own flesh and blood.
There's a lot of reason behind this but bad parenting has a big role. Favoritism, communication breakdown, lack of discipline and respect, frequent arguments, and etch. Things that can be addressed if the parents are prepared, responsible and committed to give their family a happy and stable life.
I think families argue to come up with different solutions. They may argue as they have very passionate opinions.
It seems to stem from a lack of fundamental understanding. They are likely arguing to fight, not to resolve. One may want to fix things, where the other is just venting frustration. It's important to be able to argue and fight for a collective goal, not just to should and be hurtful.
Because people have feelings, often don't know how to properly express them, and then pick some side issue to fight about. Besides, it's what makes holiday get togethers so very charming!
This is absolutely normal, because all people are individual and everyone wants to live their own way and it is very difficult to find a compromise even when you love your soulmate very much. By the way, I recently learned that the most divorces occur in families who married on December 21, that is, 1221. And then I realized that this number is connected with numerology. I found out that people who are associated with this number do not want to obey and they like to do what they want and when they have there is no this opportunity, they are trying to get out of this trap. Many do not believe in numerology, but I also came across it and it seems to me that there is something spiritual that controls human life. What do you think about this?
