Thoughts for Today
One option in dealing with conflict is an "I'll get him (her)" attitude. "I win and you lose because I am right and you are wrong." This is a power play and shows little or no love.
Another option says, "I'll get out. I'm uncomfortable, so I'll withdraw from the conflict." And you storm from the room with nothing solved.
"I'll give in. I'll be nice and submit to your demands so you'll love me." You become a doormat who is smiling but frustrated.
"I'll meet you halfway. I have only half of the truth and I need your half." This is the attitude of creative compromise, but these two half-truths may not equal the real truth.
The Bible calls it speaking the truth in love.
