Life is too short and none of us want to waste our little time fighting with our loved ones. But, it is normal that we often get in conflicts with the ones we love the most. We don’t go fighting with strangers walking around the street. Do we?
Conflicts occur when a person’s thoughts do not match with others or have different opinions on a particular matter. It is not always necessary that conflicts happen in major discussions, but it normally occurs in casual and small matters.
Here are some simple hacks:
1. Keep patience
Conflicts are very normal human instincts. Losing your cool over them will only worsen the situation. Keep yourself calm and focus on solving the differences. Remember: the person with whom you are fighting is your own self.
2. Be brave enough to confront
Confront the issues, bring a solution and move on in the right spirit. Deal with the issues rather running away from it. Don’t hold back the negativity, it will only burden you.
3. Forgive and let go
It’s human to make mistakes. Learn to forgive rather than holding grudges against each other. Reacting to our anger, our mind stops functioning and we give up to our temper.
Talking it out helps! Many misunderstandings are can come to an end through a proper and open discussion.
Never blame, criticize or complain about the person, no matter what the problem is. Before you blame that person, keep a check on yourself. It completely depends on you, if you want to put an end to it or let it continue. Ask yourself how you went wrong and work on solving it.
6. Clear expectations
Don’t have many expectations from people, but try to understand what they expect from you.
7. Adjust and understand
It is not practical that everyone will agree on each and every opinion you have. So learn to adjust and understand others’ perspective. It’s completely okay to have different opinions on different topics.
