Conflicts are an inevitable part of life. However hard we try, it’s not easy to avoid them permanently, but the stronger we are the more easily we will handle them and without having to cut ties.
If we choose to walk away, it is often because we’re afraid to look deeply within ourselves. We bury the things we don’t like, or don’t want to deal with, and pass those off as if the problem for us doesn’t exist.
Some of us will sit on the fence or leave those things to someone else to sort out, but not dealing with conflict means 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 involved in blame, resentment and projection causes relationships to drift, and causes more resentment. When we judge, separation and conflicts will occur. When we blame, we’re dealing with conflict within ourselves that we’ve never dealt with.
Emotional conflicts and resentments rarely have anything to do with the present moment. The present moment is usually the catalyst for buried issues to surface. Most conflicts and negativity come from past issues not yet dealt with.
Those feelings are projected into conflict in the present moment that we don’t always recognise, or as being part of us.
