- Would it help to not feel alone and have people to get feedback from?
Why is conflict so hard to address?
- When emotions such as anger, frustration and resentment are felt, it’s often difficult to think and behave rationally.
- Our natural tendency is to escape or avoid difficult situations. The easiest thing to do when confronted with conflict may be to pretend we don’t notice and hope that it will go away on its own.
- We are positively reinforced for being passive, minimizing or agreeable.
- We fear damaging relationships, of being viewed as the trouble maker, or worry our reputation will be damaged.
Avoiding conflict isn’t an option.
Avoiding conflict may serve us well in the short-term, but can lead to bigger problems if left unaddressed. While avoidance may bring short-term relief to our anxiety, it leaves the conflict unresolved. This can worsen or complicate the conflict. Unfortunately, resolving conflict can be tricky as well. Handled improperly, attempts at conflict resolution can actually make the conflict worse. Some of the impact unresolved and prolonged conflict has on us are:
- A negative impact on health and longevity. Anger speeds up one’s heart rate and raises blood pressure. As this occurs over a length of time, it causes wear and tear on the heart, raising the risk for life-threatening cardiovascular problems.
- Women experience steep rises in hormone levels after arguments occurred, as they thought about and relived the arguments. The resulting psychological stress in turn weakened their immune systems and made them more susceptible to viral infections.
- Exhaustion and work at sub-optimal levels.
- Conflict elicits stress, a self-defense mechanism against harmful elements in our world. Chronic stress can lead to psychological problems, including anxiety disorders and depression.
- Stress borne from conflict can make people feel distrust, anger, anxiety and fear, which in turn can harm relationships at home and at work.
- Poor decision-making due to poor communication
