📽 Conflict is the price you pay for healthy relationships

I'm not good at conflict. In fact, this is my natural response...

As I've failed at conflict over and over and over again, I've learned this truth:

Conflict is the price we pay for healthy relationships.

For me, the key has been curiosity. When I approach a conflict, disagreement, misunderstanding or opposing opinion with curiosity, I always walk away with a better understanding of myself and a stronger relationship with the other person.

I get in trouble when I leave the curiosity behind and bring ego instead. Like I said, I haven't mastered it yet.

I encourage you to lean into the conflict with curiosity. You'll never regret it.
