Conflict

Standard

Conflict cannot survive without your participation ~ Wayne Dyer

Are you the kind of person who engages in conflict? A few years ago, I would have said I was most definitely a fighter but the older I get, the more I see conflict as a complete waste of time. I have learned to pick my battles. They are few and far between and slowly but surely, I am learning to zip my lip. I don’t have to have the last word and I don’t  have the need to prove I’m right. Most of the time it comes down to perception. It’s okay to have different opinions. Conflict doesn’t solve a single thing. It never has and it never will. I know if I don’t want to play the conflict game then I have the choice to sit it out. It always comes down to the choices we make. Conflict or no conflict? It’s up to you.

  1. Conflict is the engagement of two rams (or Aries/Ares) butting heads to see who is more driven or powerful. Whether it’s a gun fight, a knife fight, a fork and spoon fight, a spaghetti western…spaghetti sounds good right about now. Where was I going with this? Oh, never mind. Conflict? No, I’d rather not right now. But, if you corner this cat, be prepared to get scratched. I typically engage in conflict in a defensive manner. You bring the battle, I bring the guns…er, fists. But, if the battle seems senseless, I try to stay out of it.
