Whether it is being stressed to just being bored, conflict is an element of life. Arguing, fighting, trying to prove your point, or even being silent is easily directed to some sort of conflict. Just like one who lacks certain skills such as catching easy throws or even keeping balance. This indicates that one either needs more practice or is not concentrating and that talking in a grumpy tone shows that you may encounter a mishap between you and the people around you. If you are willing to live a life were no conflicts are bound to happen, you need to find a way where you can become less agitated and work a little more on conflict resolution. It will help improve your relationships in the near future. The best of conflict resolution is talking it out, together. This would lead the two of you to an agreement that would eventually come to a resolution. It is either feeling misunderstood or being spoiled that is the problem. Equality plays a big role when it comes to solving conflicts, because if one is not equal to the other then the more problems you have to solve. Focusing on what causes conflict, what the options are that you decide to use as resolutions, and how to accomplish non-problematic situations are very important for one to maintain a healthy relationship. There are many different techniques that help us feel comfortable but at the same time create the most problems when interacting. One might think that the tension between a child and their parents may be normal, but that isn’t always the case. Lack of understanding, especially in personal relationships can result in things like giving each other some space, arguments among each other, and separations for an amount of time could lead to consequences such as divorce. Same goes for jobs. Say your manager disapproves of your work; the two of you will then come to a disagreement which may lead to losing your job. When you become more aware of understanding conflict resolution, the closer you get to solving problems and maybe even keeping things together.
Dealing with conflict in an inconsiderate way can either lead to depression or leave others hurt. However, when you deal with it in a compassionate way it helps us recognize one another, which will help make our relationships stronger. It is very important for one to be in touch with his or her feelings because you would not be able to understand yourself. And not knowing who you really are, you will have a hard time with others. Personally, this year has gotten off to a pretty rough start. I have been involved in so much drama, even ones where I have no business in. And one thing where every one might ask themselves is, why me? This year I was hoping for a year with no drama. But of course, something always has to go wrong. Recently, I have gotten into a fight with two of my closest friends over the littlest thing. And to be honest, I am the one to blame. But I guess you could say that I wasn’t in my right mind at that moment. One thing that I would like to change would be how I acted towards them when they confronted me about it. They had given me a chance and I blew it. “Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.” –Unknown. I wish I knew this before and everything would have been alright, but I guess that is how it is. When it comes to a conflict between friends, it is always important to remember that it is not always about you, but is about something much larger than you. And in this case, that something would be my friends. There was also this time where I kept getting involved in something where I had no business of. And no matter how hard I tried to get out of it, the worse it got. Unfortunately, I keep getting reeled in whenever something happens and there is no way to get out, so I just tend to ignore the whole situation. The difference between these two examples is that the first one is a small misunderstanding between a couple of friends. However, the second is caused by a fellow who enjoys starting something new. In this case, all you have to do is ignore. I believe that confronting the person is not a good idea because they will know that it is making you mad and they will continue to do it. So ignoring is the way you want to go and if that does not work then tell an adult and I am sure they will be able to help. Being mad about the whole situation is not worth it because what good is it doing to you. In the end, you just want to be happy.
Trust plays a big role in conflict resolution. One thing to remember is to always keep your word. If you say that you will do something, do not back out. That will sure bring the drama into your life. Whatever you commit to others, you will be expected to do them. The worst thing in life is to get people angry with you, especially if it is because they do not trust you.
Staying on the right path is needed in order to have no conflicts in your life. However, any mistake, big or small, will trigger it. We need to be more aware, especially of the people around you, most importantly yourself. Do not doubt yourself and think of the worst. Understanding yourself is very important and will help you with others. Honestly, it is up to you to solve your own situations. However, if you are having trouble then just is positive. Forget those who just want to cause drama and leave everything behind you and enjoy your life. Do not let anyone bring you down to your weakness. All you need to do is mind your own business and focus on what makes you happy. Eventually, they will leave you alone and move on with their lives.
