Dealing With Conflict In A Relationship

Dealing With Conflict In A Relationship

Posted on behalf of Rob McPhillips

Conflict is a natural part of a relationship.

No two people are going to agree on anything. However, what matters most in relationships isn't whether you disagree, but how you deal with conflict.

There is conflict that becomes destructive and eventually destroys the relationship and there is conflict that can be constructive.

The difference between the two is the difference between a strong relationship and one that ends in bitterness and animosity.

Join us for a discussion, bring your experiences and opinions. If you have any relevant personal situations that you'd like to get different opinions on, we'll be happy to discuss. If not we can talk more abstractly.

The aim of the Meetup is for an open, honest discussion, but not to come with an agenda to push on everyone else. We're happy if you talk or quite happy for you to sit and listen. If you're happy to share experiences and issues we'll talk directly to them or you can talk more generally.

Expect your opinions to be challenged, but kindly, in the spirit of getting to the truth, because none of us have a monopoly on the truth. The intention is that if we all openly look beyond our own biases and preconceived ideas we can come to a deeper understanding that we can take back to improve our existing relationships.

There is no charge for the MeetUp. However, obviously we'll be in The Kings Arms and as we've been given a space the expectation is that we will all buy at least one drink each. I'll email out my mobile number before the MeetUp so you can be sure to find us. Hope you can join us.
