Taking Sides in a Conflict

October 10, 2013

Sometimes you have to take sides! Remember, though, that when you do you create division. If division will help you solve the conflict confronting you, then, by all means, take sides. But if you know it won’t–and many conflicts cannot be solved in that way–then you will need to position yourself at the very center, where the opposing forces meet, and welcome both sides into your awareness. Once you see both sides clearly, you can see what connects them. It is through what connects them that you can often find an integrative solution.

    I have realized that everyone has “good” and “bad” potential, so it can be difficult for us to see our own actions in either light. It is a hard task because of our social conditioning, but the path you are speaking of is the center path I think. We have all been part of the social network “conditioning”, whether we realize it or not. Thanks for sharing Dennis:)
