August 25 Kiss and Make Up Day

Let go of resentment, grudges, anger, and indignation. This unofficial holiday encourages people to make up and reconcile with anyone they are estranged with – at work, school, or in their family. 

Conflicts happen in life. Disagreements are a big part of our relationships with others. Best friends, friends, families, and co-workers, may all experience them.

Apologize, forgive, make up,
Lots of the time, these differences can easily be set aside and forgotten. However, some arguments and misunderstandings can take an ugly turn, estranging and isolating people from each other.
