A tense situation is one that makes us worried or anxious about something with an uncertain outcome. We do not know what is going to happen next. But what should we do when all strategies fail, and we find ourselves in the middle of a tense situation? Definitely we should try to diffuse that kind of situation. Handling and diffusing a tense situation is quite a skillful task and challenging work. Here are the most commonly used expressions for Diffusing a Tense Situation.
