How Do You Handle Your Conflict?

By: Mary Miner

Are you a snapper?  Or are you the silent one and avoids conflict?

Both methods are not conducive to building loving relationships.

I used to be both, a snapper for years and then I switched to the silent one. Most of us don’t know any other way because our parents were snappers and yellers or they avoided conflict and stayed distant from each other. Snapping and yelling or giving someone the silent treatment are different methods but what if you learned a new method and your relationships grew closer, got better, not worse.

If you want more love and peace in your home and be more productive at work, I invite you to explore the life of love and respect. Isn’t that what we all crave from our loved ones and co-workers?  Isn’t that what you promised and were promised on your wedding day? Furthermore, you would be more productive at work because you wouldn’t be thinking about about last nights argument because it would be resolved and over.

So, I’d like to ask you, would you say that your relationship with your significant other, loved ones, co-workers, etc, would be better if you didn’t snap and shout at them and you learned how to resolve your issue without the silent treatment?

Of course it would. Nobody likes to snapped at or yelled at . So if nobody likes it, why do we do it?  If we give more love, we will get more love. If we spat or be silent, nothing gets settled and we will have less love, more distance. Make sense?
