Resolving conflict

No one is on the same journey as you. Yet countless people have passed through similar terrain, and continue to do so.

You are very much like others, and at the same time you are very much different. No one knows how it is to be you, yet everyone shares the complex and ineffable experience of being alive.

By your very nature as a unique individual, you cannot avoid conflict. What you can do is resolve conflict and put together ways to successfully live with it.

What is your primary tool in doing so? It is truth.

Be honest about your priorities, understand the conflicting priorities of others, and be mindful of your common interests. Call upon those truths to illuminate the way forward.

The way to win is not to deny, impugn or destroy the differences that exist between you and others. Build success by being clear and supportive toward what you have in common and agreeing to disagree on the rest.

— Ralph Marston
