  1. Conversation: Talk it out. Reciprocation is necessary if one really wishes to reach to the roots of the problem. Get to know what went wrong and how it should be repeated is crucial. Keep a pleasant tone and to end the conversation with- it is okay, we’ll work harder next time. That’s it. This will take away all the awkwardness and stress away.
