What to do when there is a breakdown in communication

2013 - What to do when there is a breakdown in communication

Recently I had a conversation with someone that didn’t go so great. It started out ok, but it quickly went south and started getting worse and worse. I admit it, I was frustrated and just couldn’t handle the constant nagging. I brokedown and let my emotions get the best of me.
