Conflict: The Boldness Challenge of the Day
I hate dealing with conflict! I hate dealing with conflict!
Can't be avoided. Must do it anyway.
So what's the worst that can happen when I proceed?
*lose connection with the person
*lose the good stuff that that person brings
*not be liked
*be wrong and not realize it (the persistently needling worry)
Note: all those things can happen anyway and loss of connection will finally be more likely if I hide out and don't speak up.
What's the best that can happen when I do speak up?
*a chance of keeping the relationship
*gain respect from myself and others
*get more of what I want
*a happy compromise
Okay, this was helpful. Thank you.
