We may not always want to confront every issue. However, there are times when it is vital for us to obtain peace. It can be rather difficult to be honest in some circumstances and perhaps you have been avoiding these issues to avoid conflict. Let’s take a moment to discuss, “Confronting Issues.”
How many of us may be dealing with issues right now that we need to confront but to avoid conflict will not say anything. We can become frustrated, disappointed, angry, and possibly have problems in relationships that we do not confront well. Those who truly care about you will be willing to hear you out and try to understand the issues needed to confront openly and honestly.
It is necessary to recognize what are the true issues that have caused us conflict. When you are honest enough to admit these, you should be able to discuss them without it becoming a need to defend yourself. Good communication is key to maintaining a relationship without conflict. Even when you may not agree, you are able to discuss issues without a need to argue. Take time to pray about this before you decide to face the issues.
It becomes a problem when you avoid what are the issues causing conflict. It will not go away just because you don’t discuss them. There is more respect for each other through open and honest communication. Too many operate in being fake to avoid conflict. They have accepted artificial and dishonest relationships. So, we must keep in mind that when you are willing to discuss honestly about issues, you can have a healthy relationship.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that you may begin to have health issues and other aspects of your life can be impacted when you avoid dealing with conflict issues. Your perspective might change in a negative way. You possibly can begin to see others treating you differently. You might become paranoid that everyone is the same now and/or that others are talking about you as perhaps this person/people (that you are having conflict with) has treated you before. It’s very important to confront issues properly to obtain healing and peace.
To maintain a true peaceful resolve, you must begin to acknowledge that you have a problem that must be faced. Remember avoidance can only delay the process of gaining a peaceful resolution. When you admit that you need to work with the other person/people to confront the issues, you can have a better outcome. Consider that your approach is important. When we can be truthful in how we feel without blaming the other, we will find that defensiveness will be lessened so that honest communication can be obtained.
Let me know your thoughts on confronting issues. Have you had to confront others due to issues that were causing you pain, unforgiveness, etc.? Were these issues affecting your health, other relationships, your job, etc.? Do avoid issues or are you good at being open and honest in your relationships without hurting someone? I love hearing from you and appreciate you taking moments with me.
