Conflicts happen all the time. Misunderstandings at work or conflict of interests with family members are inevitable. These problems often get resolved. But when there are situations that are more difficult to manage, how do you deal with these conflicts?
Knowing the basics of conflict resolution may help you in your everyday life. It gives you the opportunity to understand people more and see where they are coming from instead of having a one-sided argument. It will help you respond more rationally and listen to what the other person has to say.
Arguments usually make people more emotional. Sometimes the emotions take over and we end up with dirty fights and harsh words towards each other. Anger builds walls between individuals that result to more quarrels and less understanding.
The key to resolving conflicts is being able to listen to what the other party has to say. If you don’t give each other the chance to explain, then that argument will go in circles. God has commanded us to bear with one another and become peacemakers.
