    Some people play with their smartphone

    while they are walking. I won't mind if there is no one. But they do so when the street is narrow and someone else is walking from the opposite direction. They do so in the crowded Japan's train station in the morning. They do so at the intersection. They don't make any effort...

    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 am new to this site.

    I joined because I am having an issue at work with a co-manager. He is verbally abusive. If he doesn't like you he talks about you to staff and will come at you with profanity, yelling, chest to chest- I am a woman, this does not stop him. He does not only treat me this way but...

    The worst thing a friend can do is backstab you.

    .. There are many things I can tolerate in a friendship because after all there is no such thing as a perfect friend. Though lying may irk me, being rude may test me, and ignoring, may tempt me to become vengeful. The thing that will cause a friendship to cease immidiatley is...

    Microsoft is going to introduce a middle finger

    emoji. I don't think it is a good idea at all. Why add a new way to insult someone and cause a conflict?

    My sister in law is working at the same office

    as me. The problem is that she is a bully and a narcissist and she is always trying to take the control over me. Her brother (my husband) avoids her cause of all the trouble she has caused over the years. Tried to talk to her and put up limits but she dont listen. Its like being...

    I think I came across a small embezzlement

    scheme in a cheap hotel of Tokyo I had checked in today. After I paid ¥2800, the owner gave me a receipt with no monetary value on it. He was smiling and told me to write any number I want. Oh yeah. So I could write like ¥10,000 on it, give it to the company to receive the...

    First of all I would like to thank

    and appreciate my boyfriend for his down to earth nature and his undying devotion towards me . I love him so much which was the inspiration for me to write this post . Quite often couples enter into conflicts and unless this is resolved both persons will be having a tough time...

    In my family I am the mediator,

    I am expected to step in and calm the conflict. It is wearing thin on me, the fact that everyone's favorite past time these days is arguing or physically fighting; it makes me sick to my stomach. I just wish the world a day or even a moment of just absolute peace and happiness...

    So this is a pretty complicated topic.

    Let's just say that my family is broken apart, so much that both my grandmother and mother live in different countries, my father has had multiple girlfriends, I have many half siblings (one is still coming), my father and grandfather have a terrible relationship, my father does...

    Brutalities or wickedness of some individuals

    are beyond words. But I think people need to be very careful not to overgeneralize the whole group based on the small number of people or whatever sensational stories the media brings. People should try not to sow seeds of hatred and contempt in their hearts because I think that...

    I usually tend to avoid it,

    but if that's impossible, I end the conflict in preferably one sentence. Am I the only one who does that?

    I don't think freedom speech means you can say

    anything. Words can themselves can be like sharp knives that penetrate people's heart and may even do irreversible harm on their life. I think some events won't happen if people have the least respect for things or persons that other people cherish very much and keep silence.

    I don't deal well with conflict.

    . Like I'll feel bad then like I'll apologize for my part then I'll try to make the person laugh. Or I'll simply just forget about it.. Holding grudges is way too much work and life is short.

    So my friend was petting a neighborhood cat

    and I said hurry up and picked up a snowball and threw it at my friend but it almost hit the cat. And with my luck the cats owner was watching and yelled at me and now I'm really upset what do I do?

    I do. Like nobody's business.

    I've done some silly things to avoid conflict though, like allowing ppl to walk all over me just to "keep the peace" or to squash an argument. When I was in HS, one of my bullies had to write a letter apologizing to me for punching me in my neck, and she asked ME if I'd write it...
