How do I handle conflict? You’re wrong and I’m right! It’s my way or the highway!  I’m joking! Or am I?

Conflict, simply put, a disagreement.  I encounter several conflicts on a daily basis. Primarily, because I am right and you are wrong. There is no way around that! Honestly, I often have that mentality with most people. It’s been that way since I was a kid.  (Even though I know I am not always right, I HATE giving in to someone else! *pouting*) I know it shouldn’t be that way, and I am trying to do better.

People tell me I should have been a lawyer. I’ve been hearing that since I was a kid and didn’t understand why, at that point. Well, in adulthood, it has been made crystal clear why. I feel like I’m being interrogated! You don’t forget anything, do you?!  You were right, I was wrong! You win, are you happy?! I could go on with the complaints of those who suffered countless conflicts with me, but I won’t. I am sure you get the picture.

On the other hand, there are actually times when I know when to throw in the towel. Sometimes smiling and a hint of sarcasm can get me through some conflicts. If I know the other person could possibly cause a scene or resort to some sort of negative behavior, I’ll just gracefully explain my reasoning and try to calmly work something out. If neither of those work, I just give in and go with the other person’s way. 

Conflicts…how do you handle them?
