    Well. My mom is in the hospital.

    She has medication "to cure" her ADHD and Bipolar, but she took to much, drank too much, and started bleeding from her gut. Just when I thought it coudn't get worse. Today she picked up my sister from school so she could get a ride straight to the next town over for my mom's...

    Conflict ...

    I step into a room all is quiet or there is just this energy that is toxic to everything in the area, that is how i know there was fighting or arguing there just recently. All my life my family has done nothing but argue amongst themselves. I really can't stand it, once the...

    I have always hated conflict.

    ..when I was young..it used to make me feel physically ill. Even now...when I think that there may be issues with someone...my stomach gets all tied up in knots. I have learned not to run from conflict, but it's still really hard for me to stand up for myself.. Even watching...

    A Part Of Life

    It's always going to be around, we just have to decide how much of it we choose to let ourselves be exposed to. Personally, I avoid it as much as is possible.

    Is it possible that boredom can lead to

    depression? I am visiting family and i really want to go home. Has anyone ever felt like they were stuck somewhere where they were not wanted? I am trying to be pleasant and avoid any problems, but i feel like by being quiet, i am creating more tension.

    Sick With Anxiety Over Conflict

    I tried to post this story once but it got lost so here is the condensed version: I am having a conflict with a girl at work. I can usually handle her remarks that she feels are jokes or "giving people crap" as she likes to term it. But frequently being told "way to be a...

    Because

     My parents have never argued, so I'm not used to see conflicts... I hate them, I rather yield than to keep on fighting... even when I know I'm right. I think arguing is wasting of time.... I'd rather be ignoring than shouting...  I apply this at...

    Its Not About Who Is Right, Its About...

    It's not about who is right, it's about trying to unerstand each others intentions and perceptions. Most of the time the REAL reason why people argue, is because they have a different point of view. That sucks, but it's a human thing to have your own point of views. Try to...

    I'd do almost anything to avoid it,

    and consequently don't speak my mind sometimes when I want to. I especially hate conflict with guys because when they get angry I am really afraid they'll hurt me.

    I break down and go silent.

    I start to cry and blame myself instantly. someone could have ruined something but it's my fault just to make the storm blow over. I hate conflict.

    It Upsets Me

    On a deeply intensely personal level. I can't deal with it, well I shouldn't say can't deal with it, I can if I absolutely have to. But I desperately avoid it.

    I just ended a friendship of a million years.

    and even though it was toxic, I don't know how to feel about it. Crying because of toxicity sucks. And I don't know how to handle this. Or anything.

    Conflict is dumb. Love is wise.

    Protection is needed. But a tazer beats conflict. And compromise does too.

    One of the reasons I have the issues I do in

    life, and in my relationship, is the fact that I am conflict averse. I am avoidant. If there is a big thing that will likely have people angry or upset, I will avoid that issue and do everything in my power to not have it brought up. Now, add to that my inability to keep my...

    Conflicts that turn into shouting matches,

    name calling, physical threats and physical assault should be avoided by everyone. But just because one may hate conflicts does not mean they will not quickly react to protect and defend their honor, their country, their loved ones. I am one that will not tolerate the get in...
