Let’s face it, when you bring two people together for any period of time, sooner or later there is going to be a difference of opinion.
I’ve not yet heard of two people anywhere who always think the exact same thing, at the exact same time with no variance whatsoever.
..and so regardless of whether the relationships are intimate relationships, business relationships, family relationships or friendships, there is going to come a point in time where you have different points of view.
The man / woman divide in relationships
When it comes to relationships between a man and a woman the opportunity for a difference of opinion comes up more frequently than in relationships between men or between women, mainly because we’re so fundamentally different inside.
We think differently.
We have different motivations.
We feel differently.
We have different priorities.
We have different fears, worries and concerns.
We have different approaches.
We have different meanings for the same words.
In fact, it’s a wonder that we agree on anything!
But it’s not just relationships between men and women that have problems!
As I’m sure you know, it’s not just relationships between men and women where you can have differences of opinion that lead to problems.
Though they might not happen as often, these can happen in relationships between women and between men…it’s natural when you bring two different people together.
Now, if we lived in a culture where we all enlightened and took the approach of accepting and respecting that we all have slightly different points of view, without taking it personally or allowing it to cause conflict in our relationships…we’d be fine.
Unfortunately, this isn’t often the case.
Often when someone has a different point of view there’s an assumption that they believe we’re ‘wrong’ and so we defend our point of view to show them otherwise. Or otherwise we feel that they just don’t understand our point of view, so we take it upon ourselves to explain (sometimes forcefully and in a lot of detail!) what we mean, because if they understood it, they’d agree with us, right?
The downside of this, as I’m sure you’ve experienced at some point is that a difference of opinion can quickly switch to a debate, conflict, arguement…or worse!
In my experience, knowing the one thing that can help reduce, or resolve conflicts in any and all kinds of relationships is pretty helpful…because you can use it any time a difference of opinion comes up, to prevent the conflict before it even begins.
So today I want to share with you this nugget that has transformed challenges in my own personal relationships, and that I share with anyone I work with who is having challenges in their relationship…
So how do you use this to resolve conflict in any and all kinds of relationships?
