WHAT NO ONE TOLD YOU ABOUT...
How to Handle CONFLICT
Do you feel shocked by bad behavior … or unwarranted words? Perhaps bewildered, frustrated or angry that someone could do (or say) such a thing? Do you wonder “what could that so-&-so be thinking?!” … all the while sure that it can’t be good?
Do you blame or shame the conflict-initiating person, or want to? Do you wonder why on-lookers didn’t help out? Do you catch yourself blaming yourself for having frozen, or for feeling shocked … or for not having “handled it”?
Do you feel frustrated (or mad all over again), when minutes or even hours after an insult or inappropriate remark … you still find yourself replaying the incident over & over again? Not enjoying your evening? Complaining (or even snapping) at a friend or loved-one? Tossing, turning, hardly sleeping?
