Healthy Conflict

How would you describe your go-to response to conflict?

Fight, flight and freeze are classic primal responses to danger and conflict. But these are not our only options. Human relationships benefit from more caring, connective engagement. Good marriages, treasured friendships and healthy communities do better when healthy engagement is the normal response to conflict. Disagreement is a part of human relationships. When we listen to each other with curiosity and care about each other’s needs it is more possible to live together happily – and hold the tension of our differences.
