6. “Now, conflict can happen in different ways, and for various reasons, but one thing is sure; it is caused by disagreements between parties on how things should be done. Sometimes it could be differences in opinion, interests, and values, which can make people feel the need to assert their views on others. ” – John Ward

7. “Our differences do not automatically create conflicts. Differences become a problem when a person thinks and feels that his values, desires, motivations, and ideas are compromised in the relationship. Every person has his own set of deep, personal needs that is exclusive to him. The issues may appear trivial to someone else and that is where the problem lies.” – John Ward

8. “People embroiled in conflict are tender and vulnerable, even if they do not feel or look that way.” – Hesha Abrams

9. “People have varying views, opinions, and feelings about certain things. These differences are bound to create conflicts and misunderstandings.” – John Ward

10. “Resolving conflict takes up time and energy. Prioritize and focus on the present. Sometimes you have multiple issues you want to resolve. When this happens, organize your thoughts and manage your emotions first. Ask yourself if all of them really matter today.” – John Ward

12. “Some people find it easy to deal with a conflict that doesn’t involve them because then they only have to moderate over the situation. Even such conflict has its peculiarities such that if you don’t get the resolution right, you might contribute to a fractured relationship. ” – John Ward

13. “Some people say they would rather avoid conflicts but what does that do? You can never find someone who thinks and feels exactly the way you do one hundred percent of the time.” – John Ward

14. “Some people try to avoid conflict altogether, but this approach means you will not be vested in the relationships you have with others. You can only avoid conflict when you are not interested in building lasting relationships with other people, so let’s not even talk about it because we are trying to do the opposite.” – John Ward

15. “Sometimes what you need to achieve a positive outcome with the conflict is to practice forgiveness, which can be forgiveness in advance. This idea relates to the kind of battle you experience with people who are a permanent fixture in your life.” – John Ward
