Conflict is a struggle, or opposition, of ideas or interests.
The conflict may just be within yourself or it may be with one or many other persons.
It’s possible that you are the only one aware of the conflict because you are avoiding bringing it out in the open. Maybe you are agreeing, apologizing or even accommodating the person you are in opposition to.
It’s possible you were never taught how to deal with conflict effectively. This can be true if you watched parents scream and yell at each other, never coming to resolution verses watching them sit down and discuss the struggle out loud and openly. Even the opposite can be true with one parent avoiding conflict by never addressing their struggles therefore again, never allowing you to witness healthy conflict resolution.
Healthy conflict resolution is something that is important for us to develop so that we can start cultivating more strong, trusting relationships with everyone in our life.
Here is how avoiding conflict can create more conflict:
- You resisting what is going on by avoiding and not processing
- You build up negative emotion
- You don’t figure out how to clean up your thoughts
When we take the time to look at what is happening for us with any struggles or opposition we are having with someone it is healthy for us to do a few things:
Take a look at our thoughts, what is going on in our brain, by doing a thought download.
Look at how these thoughts are making us feel and then how these feelings are making us show up.
This will show us the result we are getting.
At this point we can decide whether we are wanting to change our thoughts so that we get a result that we want or not.
Possibly we do want to change our thoughts to get a result that we like, yet it’s also possible that we will want to talk to the other party and discuss what is going on for us.
The one thing you must always remember is no one else is in charge of your happiness, so the objective is not to control them by telling them how they need to act to make you feel good.
That is your job.
Still, you may want to clarify what is happening for you.
Let me give you an example.
Let’s say you have a husband, I may or may not know of one, who has committed to dog sitting a puppy during time, two days to be exact, when you, that would be me, will be at home working and husband will be away from the home working.
I could get angry and just let it happen, maybe take it out a bit on said husband.
I could do a thought download and decide how I want to handle the situation out of love for myself.
Then make a decision as to what I’m going to do and be all in and in love with my choice
The latter is what I have chosen to do. The old me would have taken it out on husband from the time it was announced until who knows when.
With choosing the way I did, making the choice to think I am going to enjoy this little puppy, which makes me feel helpful, which allows me to take the action of planning my days so it works for me, loving the puppy, ask husband to clarify story of how this came about so that I fully understand scenario, ask husband to, in the future, please check with me before volunteering my time but also recognize that he may not follow through, decide how I will deal with the situation if it arises again.
