    I went shopping with my husband at walmart

    today. As we were going back to our car, there was a man in a car yelling at some people. My husband, who always walks ahead of me (he's faster than I am), tells the guy there is a parking spot on his right. The next thing I know, my husband is yelling back and forth with the...

    When I was married there were lots of arguments.

    I've been on my own for 12 years. I enjoy not having to fight every day. It's good to be free. :-)

    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...

    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.

    Some people get into disputes with other

    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.

    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...

    Humans are created differently from one another.

    If we could not accept the differences between ourselves, then we are simply inhumane.

    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.
