Check out this quick video regarding “How to overcome conflict resolution mistakes you’ve been making in 5 easy steps!”

Below, you can find a couple of tips from the video.

Step away from the problem

  • Check yourself and become more self-aware.  Most of us repeat unhelpful behaviors in conflicts because we are unaware of what we are doing
  • We can only change habits through awareness
  • Plan what you want to say to avoid saying something that will escalate a conflict

Focus on a solution to the problem, not who is at fault.    

  • A resolution should be your ultimate goal.
  • Decide if you want to be right, or if you want to win together!
  • Be clear about your intentions and goals for the conversation
  • If your most important goal is to win, blame or change the other party, the conflict will probably escalate, no matter what skills you use.
  • Only begin a conversation about a conflict in order to learn something new, express your views and feelings, or to problem-solve.
  • Conflict is not a contest

Have an accountability partner

  • You need people in your circle that support your marriage and are not afraid to tell you when you are wrong.
  • Seek wise counsel from people that love God when trying to navigate through a rough patch.

Take responsibility for your assumptions and unexpressed expectations.

  • Sometimes most of the battle happens in our head.  
  • Be willing to let go of your interpretation—believing that our beliefs and conclusions about others are “the truth” creates a lot of conflicts

Is it really worth it?

  • We don’t always have to correct people.  God has a way
  • If he leaves this earth tomorrow, was the disagreement worth it.

Your Homework:   Study these scriptures every morning to help you grow closer to God and cultivate your relationship with him.

  • John 15:12
  • Ephesians 4:2
  • 1 Peter 4:8
  • Romans 12:10
