Look at conflict not as opposing forces – but as the opportunity to correct a problem.
We’re all different.
We therefore see things differently – and react to events differently.
Sometimes, those difference collide and we’re in conflict.
However, once we realize that it’s not a “right-wrong,” “good-bad” kind of thing; it’s merely a difference in viewpoint, then, we are freed up to find a common path to the solution, alleviating much of the pain associated with disagreeing.
Look for the way for all parties to get as much as possible, rather than as a win-lose proposition, and the pain of conflict will be greatly reduced – sometimes even eliminated.
