Thanks for Sharing

conflict is personal

 

Even though this is true, it’s a hard thing to do in a moment of conflict.  Because conflict feels Very Personal.  That is why we fight back; we think we’re protecting ourselves.  But what we’re really tapping into is our ego.  If you can just step back and give the situation some space, you’ll see that the person you are in conflict with is acting out because of their own internal issues, which have nothing to do with you.  Giving the situation more of our energy just fuels the anger further.  Remember, it’s not about you.  Have compassion and don’t get tricked into going down to their level.  Say, “Thanks for sharing” and move on.  Emerge Positive®
