    I hate conflict.  I try to find the nicest but most firm way of saying something to get my point across.  I try to be the peace maker and keeper.  It's the libra in me.  But...if conflict is unavoidable...watch out.

    I don't like conflict.

    I want the world to be a good place to live. Sadly my defense to conflict is to just ignore it and pretend that it isn't happening. I know that doesn't make it go away but I don't want to stress over something i have no effect over. Sometimes I wish I could travel into the...

    ~ No Matter What ~

    * I'm hoping with a bit more confidence that I will eventually be able to stand up for what I believe in. Will be able to state my side without cowering away in fear. It's hard, I've been swallowing my opinions & feelings for a lot of years, but in getting to know myself I've...

    Life Is to Short to Create Conflicts Even When You Are Right!

    Why argue. Today the #2 boss asked me wht my partner has kept a item for 2 years & 3 months. I said that certain people do not share or honor the joint property. Why get in a conflict. I have worked all this time without it & have outstanding evaluations. She has not...

    I Love Beavus and Buthead

    But I avoid conflict, I think everyone is entitled to their opinion, and that's the beauty of life. Though I don't always agree with everyone, I don't think confronting them would do any good. I do love to debate and discuss the differences, but I don't like to fight.

    Avoiding Conflict

    I admit that I avoid intense conflict. Not all conflict but the ones where I know it can be intense (i.e my wife) and yet I also know that it is only through conflict can reconciliation be achieved. The problem is that there is fear behind it..the fear of being judged, the fear...

    Keeping The Peace...

    My husband and I have an extremely strange and "strained" relationship. There is so much he says that if I was working on implusivity...would just blow up into a huge arguement...so I try to stay calm for the sake of the kids. There is nothing worse for young children to see...

    But Does It Avoid Me

    I have enough GGRRR!! in my life so finding more here is not an option. I've learned to avoid it here when at all possible and maybe I'm out of the loop on a lot of things but that's okay with me. :)

    My mom and dad always fought

    and yelled at each other. I even see them running around the house naked fighting. To this day when fighting and arguing are in front of me, I Leave. I picture myself, as a little kid watching two grown ups acting like little kids. Still hurts. My children have never seen us...

    Sometimes- not all. But today,

    if I ignore phone calls, texts, and beatings on my door long enough, the problem will go away-- right? I think it's a splendid plan.

    Why Argue?

    I think some argueing is good up to a point. When it comes to yelling, I will just walk away. I don't think anything good has ever come from yelling at one another. Same goes for fighting. If you want to fight I will try to go around you to avoid it. But don't take a swing at...

    What's the Point?

    I just don't see the point in being angry and trying to fight or argue all the time.  People have enough stress.  I know I certainly do and I'm sure the person next to me does too.  Why add to it by being argumentative or mean?  I believe in...

    Life Is Too Short!

     I agree with moonwalker. Life is too short and what is accomplished in the end except ill feelings, tension and future conflict? There are things I will certainly step into the fray about, but generally I try to avoid conflict. On EP if I am responding to someone else...

    It's seems so much easier

    than arguing over something that you may or may not be right about. I just rather avoid it all together and move on. On the other hand I think inner conflicts are probably best being dealt with seeing how running away from things like that is very unhealthy, but the trivial...

    I Do My Best to Avoid Conflict...

    I do my best to avoid conflict. It's nothing but drama, and I hate drama. If someone is dramatic, I keep myself away from them.

    I don't like yelling,

    I don't like arguing, and I don't like fighting. So I avoid it. Agree with things even if I don't like it. Get rid if things even if I don't want to. But if it avoids a conflict of any type then why not?

    Avoiding Conflict Almost Killed Me

    My husband has an explosive temper. For someone like me who hates yelling, it is kind of traumatic when he gets angry. So I bend over backwards to avoid fights. But after 9 years, biting my tongue and bottling up any unpleasant emotions turned me into a depressed, anxious...
