I hate conflict.
By this I mean mental conflict. The constant arguing and disagreement that seems to be prevalent in our age. Whenever you turn on the television news you see various politicians treating each other as lower species and arguing over every single matter.
In my personal life I see conflict everywhere, my wife and daughter constantly bicker, my work colleagues argue.
I just want to put my hands over my ears and scream for everyone to stop and try to get on.
Maybe it’s always been this way and I’m now just more tuned into it. The art of compromise does seem to have disappeared though and people just entrench in polar opposite pits and throw mud at each other.
Why the conflict? Surely people don’t enjoy it?
It’s not good for our mental health, it’s not good for our society, it’s not good for us trying to be positive.
Listen, empathise and let’s work together for all our benefit.
Stop the conflict.
