A trick during a moment of back-and-forth stabs

Stop accusation. Stop saying “you did so and so, and I didn’t like it.” Not even “I feel insert emotion when so and so.”

Add “I understand that” and repeat what the other said in second person. “I understand that you are insert emotion when so and so.”

For me, it works wonders. Because I just want to be understood.
