No butt

Everytime (and I've done that many many times), in response to what the other person has said, I've started my point/argument with a 'no' or 'but', it hasn't quite worked out.

I can't recall specific instances coz there are many instances. I've observed others also do the same with great frequency. Starting talks with 'no' or 'but'.

'No' and 'but' are immediate refusals. In being refusals, they are also tools of verbal aggression. As instinctive as we all are, the other person's shields also come up as quickly as the utterance of those words.

The alternative ways might be long-winded. They might take a little more time. But they might work faster and more congenially than 'no's  and 'but's.
