I used to pride myself in saying I never have conflict…

It felt mature and righteous to feel at peace with all people…

And then I learned maybe I wasn’t living very honestly…

To live at peace with all people is likely living in denial in some relationships, or perhaps a bit unaware of how I impact others or how they impact me…

I clearly remember the season of my life when I realized that honest relationship is sometimes often hard work….

I clearly remember struggling over how could I enter conflict and still feel kind…

And so today when this came to my email, I had a momentary flashback to remembering this struggle…

I had a wave of gratitude that I no longer fear those moments in the same way…

Whenever you’re in conflict with someone,

there is one factor that can make the difference

between damaging your relationship and deepening it.

That factor is attitude. ~ William James 

And I found myself nodding my head and feeling my heart resonate with truth…..feeling very grateful for many who live honestly with me in the day-to-day!
