Some People Enjoy Conflict, But I Do Not

images (10)Conflict is never easy.  And the fact that no person is perfect means we all will deal with conflict at some point in our lives.  When conflict is brought to our doorstep by another it can be easier to deal with than when we are the cause of the conflict.  It bothers me incredibly when I know I have caused someone I love pain or disappointment, but it is part of life and we must accept responsibility, apologize and move forward; attempting to do our best to not repeat the offense.

Some people enjoy conflict, but I do not.  I don’t like anything about it.  I don’t like to argue.  I find drama to be deplorable.  I do not thrive on conflict.

  2. I must be using a more broad definition of conflict because not all conflict is bad and it can even help us to grow. An example of a conflict that I would not consider as bad is the uncommon occurrence on my job when I disagree with the a design decision made by our business person. In that case, I am arguing for what I think is best for our client. Sometimes I win, sometimes I don’t but every time it was a discussion that was needed.

    Of course, there are some types of conflict that we should avoid if at all possible especially the ones that are physical. We certainly don’t need to have negativity in our lives either. The important thing is resolve the conflict, understand what caused the conflict, and learn and grow from it.
