    Conflict Suffocates Me

    I always get this overwhelming feeling when there's conflict in the house, I couldn't cool it or ignore the both of them either. So I sighed loudly and retreat to my room. Ecen in school I get suffocated with conflicts that I act stupid just to calm myself. Anyway its not good...

    Some men want to do is prove they're worth

    through pointless animalistic violence. Me, I prefer my books.

    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.

    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 Dont Like It.

    I can have a debate with someone based on reason and logic, some level of understanding..but when it becomes a competition of who raises his or her voice the highest...i hate it. People who talk over the other person and say shutup a bunch of times like it helps them prove a...

    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.

    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.

    It sucks how when someone hurts me

    or does something wrong to me, I just forgive and forgive them over and over. But then when I do something wrong, they don't anything to do with me.

    It's Made Out To Be A Weakness...

    I've always known and understood that I do not receive conflict or confrontation very well. In fact, although I do not like to use the word "hate", it very much describes my dislike of both conflict and confrontation. I do not see this as a flaw, or something to be ashamed of...

    Conflict Brings Breakdowns

    I've always hated conflicts. Every time I'm around one--even if I'm not involved--I get a headache and feel sick. Truthfully? Conflicts of any kind terrify me. I feel that they will never get resolved without someone getting hurt, and I hate it when that happens. Conflicts serve...

    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.

    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.

    Not All Conflict

    Ok, I've been thinking about this group ever since I joined it. I really don't like conflict; it's uncomfortable. But I can't say that I actually HATE it. Conflict is neccessary. As people are all different, with different views, beliefs and feelings, we are not all going to see...

    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...

    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...

    At all costs. I will bite my tongue, step in the middle, do anything I have to. I don't like raised voices, hands that gesture too fast, yelling, cursing, or anything else anger induced. I will do all I have to to stop it. It makes me very nervous & fearful. I'm terrified of...

    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...

    Conflict is dumb. Love is wise.

    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...
