“I think confrontation is healthy, because it clears the air very quickly.”
A good friend of mine shared with me how growing up things were always “swept under the rug” and not confronted within her family. As a result, her adult relationships followed the same pattern. What resulted was not a harmonious, peaceful way of living but instead a festering sense of frustration born out of suppressing her true self and feelings.
While choosing non confrontation creates a short term type of relief, it allows the unaddressed issues to gain momentum and even worse, prevents the wonderful sense of clearing the air and learning from the turmoil.
Confrontation, done in a healthy and honest manner, can be incredibly freeing regardless of how it is received.
Wishes to you for a beautiful day!
