Some misunderstandings arise because of culture clash. Others are in willful denial of something that you`d rather not acknowledge. It`s hard to respond rationally to something that seems to call out for a grand gesture . If neighbors (or even family members) don`t see eye to eye with you, you`ll have to face this issue alone. It`s an adventure in problem solving that you`d prefer to avoid, but you`ll deal with it if there`s no other way. Start looking for the materials to build a bridge across a chasm. Use anything that works.
