Conflicts are an inevitable part of life. But however hard we try it’s not easy trying to permanently avoid them, but the stronger we are, the easier we’ll handle them without having to cut ties.
For those of us who choose to walk away from conflict, it’s often because we’re afraid to look deeply within ourselves. We tend to bury the things we don’t like, or we don’t want to deal with and pass those off as if the problem for us doesn’t exist.
Some of us will either sit on the fence or will leave it to someone else to sort out, but the problem with not dealing with conflicts, is that all communication stops until the conflict is addressed or resolved. Outer conflict when it’s ignored will harm others if we deny our part.
Getting stuck into blame, resentment and projection causes relationships to drift. They also cause resentment. When we judge, separation and conflicts will occur. When we blame, we’re dealing with conflict within ourselves that has never been resolved.
Emotional conflicts and resentments rarely have a lot to do with the present moment. Most of the negativity we feel comes from past experiences not yet dealt with. Those feelings are projected into conflict that we don’t always recognise as coming from us.
When we take control and recognise the negative conflicts that are within us, we will change our outward personality to compassion, tolerance, patience and love.
