Brush it off

Jen: Do you brush things off easily during an argument or a disagreement with you boyfriend or girlfriend?

Christine: it depends on how the argument ended. So if there was consensus, I would brush it off. But if there is no resolution reached, then I can’t until it’s reached.

Daniel: Sometimes not. It depends on what happens. Usually I like to brush things off to move things ahead and try to move pass things. I like to talk through them and I feel like we should be able to trust each other. If it is with friends or with relationships, that’s the best way.
