Being the "bigger" person

about 6 weeks ago we had a huge fight with our neighbor which involved our dog getting in his yard, him letting his 2 dobermans out to attack my dog in front of my kids and he and I yelling at each other for 5 mins!

So, since that time there is major tension between us whenever I walk outside and he is outside. He is a huge jerk, but I hate feeling that.

So, yesterday he was out trimming the bushes and I was putting the kids in the car, so I told him that I was sorry about what happened a few weeks ago and that I was sorry Jack got in his yard and that I yelled at him...but that I was scared that his dogs were going to hurt my dog in front of my kids. And that I hated the tension between us and that I thought we had gotten along pretty well for the last 5 years and I didn't want one stupid incident to mess that up. so, he said he wasn't upset with me (yeah right!) and then said he probably shouldn't have let his dogs out to attack jack. and then he told me he has been pissed a lot this last year...driking every night, etc and just being mad.

So, we made up and that makes me feel good about me.

Wow, that was really great of you, T. I know that must have been hard, but good for you for being the better person to apologize first!
