What Is Conflict?

Posted By on July 5th

What is conflict other than what we believe it to be in our minds?

A conflict is simply some sort of challenge and at least one other person involved, and the conflict may actually feel more threatening than it really is. In our minds, we are assigning the level of importance to the challenge. We are assigning the level of strength we believe the other person holds.

Someone You Hate
You could be looking at the conflict through frightening or painful memories from past unhealthy relationships or from your childhood. Your experiences may lead you to view conflict as demoralizing, humiliating, and dangerous. You may feel powerless when faced with conflict.

Many times, you should actually engage conflict. Find a way to resolve it. Find a way to turn the negative into something positive. Rely upon healthy options for working through your fear or pain.

If you are trying to manage conflict with a deep-seeded fear of the outcome, you usually create the outcome you fear.
