Isn't it a balance?

Trying to keep a good outlook, and at the same time loosing one's temper
because things do not go the way we want.

I was talking to a good friend yesterday and she just wanted to call and be 
sure we could disagree and still be friends.   Friends are few and far 
between and I assured her that I wood indeed like to remain her friend.

There is a place for each of us in this battle and we both agreed that some
times it takes a good cop bad cop approach to get the best results possible.
