Eleven seminarsDo You Fight Fairly?

Most of us would avoid fighting if we could. After all, it's not very comfortable. However, personal growth is often attained through some kind of challenge. Fighting fairly and skillfully is the key to allowing conflict to serve us rather than do harm. Answer true or false to the following questions to discover if you are fighting fairly:

Set 1

  1. When people hurt me or make me angry, I'm likely to fight back or be defensive.

  2. If someone brings up a subject I don't want to discuss, I ignore him or her, or refuse to talk about it.

  3. I tend to build up resentments over time, and then let them all out in one big blow-up.

  4. I sometimes cut people out of my life when they don't agree with me or give me what I want.

Conflict Can Be a Creative Force

Conflict is as natural to the human experience as thunderstorms are to springtime. When left unchecked, conflict can generate heat and discomfort, disrupt interactions and destroy relationships. Between a couple, discord can lead to divorce. Between countries, hostilities can lead to war. But when differences are openly acknowledged and addressed, conflict can be a powerful source of energy and lead to creative solutions that encourage growth, deepen intimacy and strengthen bonds between people.

The world is made up of individuals with different ideas, wants, needs and beliefs, and conflict may occur when our differences meet. Like so many other aspects of human interaction, it's how we deal with controversy that affects our relationships -- with others and ourselves.
