disagreements? etc.


Explanation:
I believe to know it as "In DISagreements with loved ones, deal only with the PRESENT (situation); don't bring up the past." Which would be "Auseinandersetzungen mit geliebten Personen sollten sich nur um die gegenwärtige Situation drehen; vergangene Probleme sollten außen vor bleiben." This is my interpretation and a rather free translation, I don't know if there is an official translation and what that would be. HTH, Caro

wenn du mit lieben Freunden streitest, ...


Explanation:
'Wenn du mit lieben Freunden streitest, bezieh dich nur auf die aktuelle Situation - lass die Vergangenheit ruhen.'

I found this list of Dalai Lama quotations in the Web. (as quoted below). You might find it useful.
You'll notice some slight differences, I changed it to the up-to-date spelling.
Regards.

Lass die Vergangenheit beiseite, ...


Explanation:

Lass die Vergangenheit beiseite, wenn du mit geschätzten Freunden in Konflikt gerätst.

oder wir drehen den Satz um:

Wenn du mit geschätzten Freunden in Konflikt gerätst, lass die
Vergangenheit beiseite.

Eigentlich gibt es viele Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten in diesem Fall.
Hier noch einige Ideen:

loved ones:
- geschätzte Freunde
- dir nahestehende Personen / Freunde
- dir am Herz liegende Personen / Freunde
- liebe Freunde / Personen

ich hoffe es hilft
viel Glück !
